International workshop on sample preparation for cryo electron microscopy - May 21-23, 2019 - EPN campus

A two-and-a-half day practical workshop on sample preparation for negative staining and cryo electron microscopy is jointly organized by ESRF, EMBL Grenoble and IBS on the EPN campus from 21 to 23 May 2019. This is the second practical workshop in a series that began in 2018. This workshop is intended for doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and young scientists starting in the field of cryo-EM. Participants (a dozen out of 70 candidates) will be able to learn the theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation in negative staining and cryo-microscopy, then test the samples on different ESRF, EMBL and IBS electron microscopes.
Organizers and instructors : Grégory Effantin (IBS), Michael Hons (EMBL), Isai Kandiah (ESRF), Guy Schoehn (IBS) and Christoph Mueller-Dieckmann (ESRF). ThermoFisher Scientific actively supports this workshop by providing an instructor and a Vitrobot freezing robot.
