WashU Hosts Cryo-EM Symposium

December 7, 2023 | 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Join us at Washington University in St. Louis to learn about the adoption of Cryo Electron Microscopy (cryo- EM) as a versatile, multidisciplinary approach to analyze protein structure. Using cryo-EM, scientists can directly image and analyze structural details in 3D, enabling them to characterize mechanisms of action, discover new binding sites, visualize molecules in situ, and more.
