Frontiers and Careers in cryoEM Symposium

California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA

Frontiers and Careers in cryoEM Symposium | April 27-28, 2018

Hosted by the UCLA’s Electron Imaging Center for Nanomachines (EICN) at CNSI, this symposium will feature cutting-edge technology and method developments and advanced research topics in all aspects of cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM, including single-particle, tomography and MicroED). We will strive to enhance dialogue between academia and industry, and between seasoned investigators and future generations of cryoEM practitioners.

Poster Competition
