This 2.5-day practical workshop on sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM, jointly organised by the ESRF, EMBL Grenoble, ILL and the IBS, will be held from June 9th to 11th 2020. This is the fourth of a series of practical hand-on workshops and is aimed at PhDs, PostDocs and scientists new to the field of single particle cryo-EM. During the course, participants will learn theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM including prior quality control by negative staining.

There is no registration fee and meals and accommodation during the workshop will be provided free of charge. However, participants are expected to arrange and pay for their own travel to/from Grenoble. A maximum of 12 participants will be selected and we will accept a limited number of participants’ samples to be tested during the workshop. In the case that you plan to bring your own sample(s), please clearly mention this in your cover letter, also indicating the importance of the project.

Application for the workshop is open and the deadline for application is March 29th, 2020. Successful candidates will be informed during the first week after the deadline.
