4/26/2017: “Addressing Challenges in CryoEM Grid Preparation “

We invite applications to participate in a Workshop on Addressing Challenges in CryoEM Grid Preparation. 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.
