Dr. Frank was chosen as a Nobel Prize winner for work performed during his over 30 years as a Research Scientist at the Wadsworth Center. He pioneered cryo-electron microscopy methods to determine high-resolution structures of biomolecules in solution. These methods have opened the door for development of new therapeutics against drug-resistant microorganisms and many other infectious and non-infectious diseases that were previously unapproachable.

A lecture by Dr. Frank will be followed by a reception. Read more.
