Beckman Foundation Awards UCSF and IND Faculty to Advance Research Using Focused Ion Beam (FIB) Milling of Cellular Samples

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation announced Dec. 6 an award to a UCSF team comprised of IND faculty Daniel Southworth (Principal Investigator) and Carlo Condello, along with William Degrado, Robert Edwards and David Agard, through its FIB-Milling Sample Preparation for Cellular CryoET program.

The $1.5 million dollar grant will support equipment acquisition and research development for focused ion beam (FIB) milling methodology combined with high-resolution cryo-electron tomography to investigate the cellular ultrastructure associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
