The Wright lab is in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and is affiliated with the Morgridge Institute for Research. We develop and use correlative and cryo-electron microscopy technologies to explore the nano-scale architecture of bacteria, viruses, and human cells. Our goal is to use this information to aid in the development of novel antimicrobials, therapeutics, and vaccines.
