Modern Cryo-Electron Microscopy
The international school Modern Cryo-Electron Microscopy is organized by the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the Lomonosov Moscow State University. The purpose of the event is to familiarize students, graduate students, researchers of academic and scientific organizations with a modern and dynamically developing structural research method - cryoelectron microscopy. The school is a three-day intensive course on the methods used in cryo-electron microscopy, including theoretical training, an overview of the modern world instrumentation infrastructure, sample preparation methods, conducting experiments and analyzing the results. The spectrum of topics covered suits attendees that are new to the field as well as those for whom the technique is already of growing importance in their research and who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of the methodology. Educational lectures and master classes will be given. Leading researchers in the field of cryoelectron microscopy from Russia, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, and France will be tutors of the school.
