About the Visualization Center

The center was founded in 1972 as the Laboratory of Structural Biology by Dr. Susan Lowey, Dr. Carolyn Cohen and Dr. Don Caspar (who coined the term ‘structural biology’), joined shortly by Dr. David DeRosier. Other faculty members over the years include Dr. Hugh Huxley, Dr. Niko Grigorieff, and Dr. Daniela Nicastro (a fuller version of the history of the facility is available).
