Cryo-EM Forum@Biochemistry

Everyone is welcome to attend!

In order to promote the use and expand our local knowledge of Cryo-EM technique, we’ve created a Cryo-EM Forum@Biochemistry – a series of informal seminars with invited experts in the area of Cryo-EM.

Organising team: Daniel Bollschweiler, Jamie Blaza and Dima Chirgadze

Please subscribe to our Cryo-EM mailing list (or e-mail Dima “dyc21 at” with a request to subscribe) to receive future seminar announcements, Cryo-EM facility updates, and to engage in conversation about the exciting world of Cryo-EM.
