Freezing Cancer: How Cryo-EM is advancing oncology research



Cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, is a powerful structural analysis method. It’s being used to help researchers better understand cancer and see how biomolecules move and interact in the body.

But Penn State’s cryo-EM technique is one of a kind. In this episode of the Science with a Twist podcast, our host Kathy Davy welcomes Deb Kelly, the director of the Center for Structural Oncology at Penn State University. They talk about Professor Kelly’s approach to cancer research, how it’s helping researchers better understand breast cancer, and the immense value of cryo-EM in outsmarting cancer.
