Industrial Macromolecular Crystallography Association
Collaborative Access Team
IMCA-CAT is an organization charged by the Industrial Macromolecular Crystallography Association to design, build, and operate an experimental facility at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory.
The mission of IMCA-CAT is to provide an outstanding support environment for macromolecular crystallography by developing and operating an efficient, reliable, high-throughput facility at which both confidential and proprietary experiments can be readily and easily accommodated.
IMCA-CAT is located at sector 17 of the APS ring and in the Laboratory and Office Module, Building 435A, at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory.
IMCA is an association of pharmaceutical companies committed to the use of macromolecular crystallography as a tool in drug discovery and product development.
IMCA-CAT is operated through a contract with the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute.
