We acknowledge and thank the National Institute of Health for it’s support for our project.
The NIH grant award to the CryoVR work is 1R25EY029127-01.
As part of the overall mission to increase access to cryo-EM, the NIH started a curriculum and National Center training grant. Through this program, the National Cryo-EM centers and select institutions were awarded funding for curriculum and cryo-EM resource development. Below are more details about each center.

About the Award
The New York Structural Biology Center, the Oregon Health & Science University in partnership with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Lab at Stanford were awarded funds as national centers for cryo-EM across the nation. These centers provide valuable access to cryo-EM data collection and training. These awards span six years and accumulate to a total of $128 million.
California Institute of Technology, Yale, Purdue University, and University of Utah were awarded grants on behalf of the same program to develop cryo-EM learning resources. Projects under this grant include online video lectures, software, e-books, and VR simulations for cryo-EM training and cryo-EM theory curriculum. These awards span three years and accumulate to $1.5 million.
