All events for this Day

Event Name

Swedish National Cryo-EM Facility Inaugural Symposium

Start Date 8th May 2017
End Date 9th May 2017

Exploring the Complexity of Life by Cryo-EM

The first international cryo-EM symposium in Sweden will take place in Stockholm (May 8) and Umeå (May 9), and present the developments that are shaping this scientific breakthrough. Topics covered include central discoveries in cryo-EM, the most recent methodological developments and applications to central biological questions.
