The aim of this symposium is to promote the exciting opportunities in structural biology opened by the advances in cryo-electron microscopy and by the integration of structural biology approaches at multi-resolution level.
On the EPN Campus, the Partnership for Structural Biology (PSB) is renowned for providing international users access to advanced infrastructures for protein production, crystallization, SAXS/SANS, neutron diffraction, electron microscopy, NMR and X-ray diffraction.
This symposium will celebrate the establishment of a new cryo-EM platform on the EPN campus. The platform will offer access to the international structural biology community to a new Titan Krios equipped with a Quantum LS filter and phase plate. Such microscope will be installed as a user facility at the ESRF and will reinforce the ongoing EM activity at the IBS and at the EMBL. The new facility will thus be open to the user community based on peer-review of scientific merit and technical feasibility. Scientists from ESRF, IBS and EMBL will support user operation.
The symposium will bring together leading experts, junior researchers and representatives of industrial partners to present and discuss the latest developments and the future trends in cryo-EM as well as their applications in addressing biological challenges.
It will also provide a forum for discussion among both established and junior scientists from different disciplines. We encourage participants to present their scientific results in a poster session, with the possibility of being selected for a short talk.
