Mack is on a Neuron paper

Big congrats to Mack, whose third author work on this paper has helped our lab break into the big workd of Cryo-EM structures and analysis, which is a new and very exciting field for us!

The paper uses cryo-EM to solve apo and agonist-bound structures of the Torpedo nicotinic receptor embedded in a lipid nanodisc, which gives an unprecedented “before and after” look at the nAChR in a lipid membrane!
