Director, Advanced Imaging Core
Dennis C. Winkler, Ph.D., joined the NIDCD Advanced Imaging Core as a staff scientist and director after more than two decades of cryo electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and cryo electron tomography (cryo-ET) work in Alasdair Steven’s Laboratory of Structural Biology Research at the NIH’s National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), where he also managed the lab’s electron microscopy facility. He obtained a B.S. in chemistry from SUNY Stony Brook and completed his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University of Maryland, College Park, with thesis work on electron energy-loss spectroscopy. He came to NIAMS in 1998 after a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine/National Research Council research associateship at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a postdoctoral position at Lehigh University, and a lecturer position in the Chemistry Department at the University of Maryland, College Park.
