The project, organised by NanoRacks-PCG Therapeutic Discovery, seeks to obtain crystal structures of two challenging therapeutic targets, proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) and myeloid leukemia cell differentiation protein 1 (MCL1).

The protein growth in the CrystalCards automatically initiates on-orbit when the cards thaw. At least one photographic analysis session with the CrystalCards and the NanoRacks Microscopes facility is conducted to collect data on crystal growth. After the session is completed, the CrystalCards are re-stowed.
