The popular Cryo Electron Microscopy course will return for 2022, with additional new content not included previously. Covering both theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation and cryo EM techniques, this residential course is ideal for anyone new to cryo EM, but can also be attended by those wanting to refresh their existing skills.

This intensive five day course sees numerous topic experts covering a variety of sample preparation techniques (including high pressure freezing, rapid cooling and cryo sectioning), as well as cryo-microscopy operation for both scanning and transmission EMs (including specialist techniques such as freeze fracturing and cryo-STEM tomography).  Each of the topics will include tutorials and demonstrations, although most the time will go into hands-on practical sessions.  The course is aimed at life sciences, however the techniques can be applied to other fields, and we therefore invite participants from any area of academia or industry to attend. We also recommend that participants bring their own samples along, as a large portion of the course is dedicated to giving attendees the opportunity to apply the taught techniques to own research.
