  1. Hockmeyer Hall of Structural Biology

    Leave a Comment

    Hockmeyer Hall is devoted to the field of structural biology and is a primary research facility with very limited public access. It employs the most recent technologies of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), X-ray diffraction, ultra-high resolution electron microscopy, molecular crystallization as well as cell and virus culture in a modular, wet-bench laboratory environment. The facility contains very sophisticated Biosafety Level 2 and Biosafety Level 3 laboratories.

    Beyond its importance as a laboratory, Hockmeyer Hall is a key feature of Purdue’s new campus gateway. Hockmeyer Hall and the adjacent Discovery Learning Center flank the new entry drive to campus and over look a new traffic circle.
