Our work focusses on better understanding the intricate structural interactions between viruses and host complexes during virus infection and the immune response during restriction. To do this we visualize these interactions in a frozen-hydrated state at macromolecular resolution using cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET). To target specific events or rare processes we use cryogenic correlated light and electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) in combination with cryo-ET. To gain access to the entire cell, we use this approach with cryogenic focused ion beam (cryo-FIB) milling.
