Well-Being Incubator: Workshop - EUniWell 3D Electron Microscopy Workshop

27/04/2023 to 27/04/2023

University of Murcia Online EUniWell-Event

3D Electron Microscopy (3DEM) has the potential to visualise macromolecular complexes within the cell. The 1st EUniWell 3DEM Workshop will identify synergies among experts in the development of the technologies associated with 3DEM, with biologists in search of new applications.

The EUniWell 3DEM Workshop is scheduled to take place online on 27 April 2023 from 10:15 to 17:00 CEST / 09:15 to 16:00 BST. The main objective of this workshop is to convene researchers who are developing methods for 3DEM, as well as scientists09 who are already applying or are interested in this technology. The workshop will serve to evaluate the current state of the art of 3DEM within the EUniWell Alliance and its collaborators. Furthermore, participants are encouraged to present long-standing open questions in health that can be addressed by cryo-electron microscopy and tomography. Participants will also have the opportunity to showcase their research lines. A round table discussion will be held to deliberate on current challenges associated with 3DEM, including its combination with other techniques and its applications. The following speakers are already confirmed:

  • Elmar Behrmann (University of Cologne)
  • Yves-Henri Sanejouard (Nantes Université)
  • Antonio Martinez-Sanchez (University of Murcia)
  • Marion Jasnin (Helmoltz Pioneer Campus)
  • Naoko Mizuno (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute NIH)
  • Senena Corbalán (University of Murcia)
  • Macro Laurati (University of Florence)
  • Olga Mayans (University of Konstanz)
