As the Director of the Center for Membrane Protein Research (CMPR) in TTUHSC-School of Medicine, I am honored to share this wonderful news. We just hosted CMPR14th Annual Symposium last week. We are so honored to have Professor Wah Chui, Director of the NIH-Sponsored Cryo-EM Center at SLAC Stanford (S2C2), deliver an inspiring Keynote Speech! He showed us what the emerging cryo-EM techniques can offer us! Our faculty talks and trainees’ talks were also fantastic. Our VPRI Lance McMahon presented the Opening Remarks!
