On 7th February 2020, past and future users of the EMBL Cryo-EM Platform will have an opportunity to meet, discuss and start new scientific collaborations.

With this Symposium, we attempt to stimulate the exchange of experience among cryo-EM users and developers, and to strengthen the cryo-EM community.  The symposium will include sessions on applications of single particle analysis as well as a session on cryo-EM grid developments, presented by eleven invited speakers. 

Besides invited speakers, all participants are welcome to present their research during the poster session. We will also provide a tour of the EMBL Cryo-EM Platform. The meeting will be rounded out with a discussion and feedback from future users, followed by a social event.

We look forward to participants working both on the application of existing methods, and on the development of novel technology.
