​The National Center for In-situ Tomographic Ultramicroscopy (NCITU) is one 4 service centers that are part of the NIH Common Fund’s Transformative High Resolution Cryoelectron Microscopy (CryoEM) Program and funded under NIH Grant U24GM139171.

The National Network for CryoET will be established with four service centers, including one service center that will also serve as the central network hub. The network hub will be located at University of Wisconsin-Madison and led by Dr. Elizabeth Wright. The network service centers will be located at the New York Structural Biology Center (Dr. Bridget Carragher, contact), SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory-Stanford University (Dr. Wah Chiu), and University of Colorado Boulder (Dr. Andreas Hoenger, contact). The service centers will specialize in cryoET specimen preparation. The hub will perform cryoET data collection for all the user laboratories served by the network, in addition to its service center functions.
