The CABM Structural Bioinformatics Laboratory carries out structure and function studies of genomically-defined protein targets. The lab uses both NMR and X-ray crystallography, along with computational methods, to address questions emerging from genomic and functional genomic analyses. The lab also develops software to automate structure determination by NMR methods. It is one of the principal nodes of the United States Protein Structure Initiative.

The Confocal Imaging Facility is a core facility of UMDNJ-NJMS.  We provide advanced microscope systems for optical imaging of live and fixed samples. Facility Manager Luke Fritzky is trained in cell biology, has many years' experience in 3D microscopy, and specializes in working with users to find the best methods for any imaging study and assisting users as needed with experimental design, image acquisition, training, technical support and data interpretation. He is on site every weekday to facilitate imaging and in-depth consultation.
