Consultation of electron microscopy methods
After performing both undergraduate and graduate education at the University of Missouri in the Department of Biochemistry focused on structural biology, Dr. White was awarded a Cancer Research Training Award at the National Cancer Institute (NIH) where she performed her post-doctoral fellowship on structure determination of viral envelope glycoproteins using cryo-electron tomography. Dr. White now oversees the University of Missouri’s Electron Microscopy Core Facility — providing methods development, service and education to all of campus. Her primary interests are protein structure function in molecular and cellular contexts, using electron microscopy (cryoEM, single particle reconstruction, cryo-electron tomography, subvolume classification/averaging, focused-ion cryo-microscopy, image analysis, machine vision and deep learning). Of particular note, Dr. White teaches BIOCHEM 9001 “Protein Structure Determination by Transmission Electron Microscopy” in the summer semester. Dr. White has graduate faculty status, and can co-advise graduate students.
