Event Name

Addressing Challenges in CryoEM Grid Preparation

Start Date 26th Apr 2017
End Date

To be held at National Resource for Automated Molecular Microscopy, Simons Electron Microscopy Center, New York Structural Biology Center, New York, NY

The workshop can accommodate a total of 20 participants.

There are many challenges in preparing vitrified specimens of suitable ice thickness, and suitable particle preservation, distribution, and orientation, in a repeatable, reliable and robust manner.  A major goal of the workshop will be to understand the issues underlying these challenges and discuss new approaches that will lead to improvements in all of these aspects.

Invited speakers include:
Bob Glaeser (LBL), Chris Russo (LMB/MRC), John Rubinstein (U. Toronto), Tom Walz (Rockefeller U.)

The application deadline is 17 March and a final selection of participants will be made by 27 March.
