We are excited to announce the next meeting in the ‘Best practices in CryoEM’ series, the first in the series to be hosted online on 12 - 13 October 2020.


Now in its fourth year, the workshop is intended to allow those involved in the running of high-end cryoEM facilities to discuss and share best practice, and is open to EM facility scientists, manager and computing specialists both from academia and industry.


Sessions will include presentations on best practice in sample preparation, imaging and data handling/processing, operational models in light of COVID-19, as well as round table discussions focused on specific topics. A full program is to follow but, in the meantime, if you have any suggestions for topics of discussion, please contact Rebecca Thompson.


The main presentation sessions from 14:00 -18:00 CEST on 12 and 13 October are open to all participants. To register for the main session, please click the link below. When you have registered, you will be sent a personal link that will enable you to connect to both of the main sessions on 12 and 13 October.
