Danielle Jorgens is the director of the EML. She earned her PhD from UC Berkeley (2013) in Comparative Biochemistry, where she trained in advanced sample preparation techniques including cryopreservation for cells and tissues. She was a post-doctoral fellow and then a research assistant professor specializing in the ultrastructure of cancer biology at Oregon Health and Science University. Her research interests focus on the ultrastructure of the nucleolus and nucleus in cancer and normal tissues. She is also interested in developing novel methods and applications for volume electron microscopy (Volume EM) and correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM).
Reena Zalpuri has Masters & Bachelors degrees in Biophysics from Punjab University Chandigarh(India). She had training in transmission electron microscopy while working on her research project. (Adriamycin treated rat myocardium-light & Transmission electron microscopic study) She teaches the TEM course (MCB 481B).
Guangwei Min has PhD degrees in Structure Biology from Peking University (China). He had postdoc training in studying the three-dimensional (3D) structure of biological macro-molecules at New York University. He is maintaining the website for the EML and teaches the SEM course (MCB 481C).

Kent McDonald is the former director of the EML. He has a degree in Botany from UC Berkeley (1972), and post-doctoral training in cell biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His primary research interest is the ultrastructure of the mitotic spindle apparatus. In recent years he has also bee interested in development and application of cryopreservation techniques for high resolution EM and EM immunocytochemistry.
