Frontiers in Cryo-Electron Microscopy Conference

Frontiers in Cryo-Electron Microscopy Conference: 3-4th October 2017 University of Leicester

Frontiers in Cryo-Electron Microscopy

クライオ電子顕微鏡法の最前線

 

3-4th October 2017 | University of Leicester

 

 

The conference was jointly organised by the MRC-Toxicology Unit (www.tox.mrc.ac.uk), the Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology (www.le.ac.uk/liscb) and The Japanese Society of Microscopy (microscopy.or.jp) was a resounding success and we welcomed speakers and delegates from across the UK, Japan, Europe and the US.

The conference covered a variety of themes, including the latest methodologies with statistical image processing, exciting new structural insights into important biological complexes and also advanced tomography of biological organelles and membranes within intact cells or virions. Many excellent talks were given and great science was highlighted throughout.

The opening plenary talk was given by Richard Henderson (MRC LMB Cambridge) and during the conference came the announcement of the award of the 2017 Nobel prize for Chemistry to Jacques Dobchet, Joachim Frank, and Richard Henderson “for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution"
