Talks & symposia

CryoEM Current Practices Webinar series

This monthly seminar series is jointly hosted by NCCAT, PNCC, & S2C2. Talks feature highlights and strategies from users of the centers with a heavy focus on cryoEM methods. Q&A after the seminar is meant to stimulate discussion of best practices and interesting challenges that will be helpful to researchers new to the field. Representatives from all three service centers will be on hand to answer questions about the cryoEM resources available to biomedical researchers and how to access them.

Talks take place on zoom the last Thursday of the month at 9 AM pacific/12 PM eastern and are are open to all at no-cost. Registration is required.

Meet the CryoET Centers Webinar series

Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) has revolutionized biological research by providing 3D reconstructions of biological structures with nanometer scale resolution. The NIH has funded a national network for cryo-electron tomography whose mission is to provide access to cryo-ET. Come join us for this webinar series on cryo-ET and learn about how you can access this network in support of your research.
