How to Get Access

We anticipate significant interest in the Cryo-EM facility, and we intend to allow access to all interested researchers in the Cambridge area.

Academic research groups wishing to get beamtime on the machine will need to apply by submitting a beamtime proposal (when applications open, announcements will be posted here and to the Cryo-EM mailing list).

A Committee with representatives from Departments across the University of Cambridge will score the applications and allocate time on the machine for academic users on a merit basis. This will insure a fair distribution of beamtime.

In the mean time, please e-mail the Facility Manger – Dima Chirgadze – if you would be interested in using the instrumentation.
