EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
Recent technical developments in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and cryo-tomography now allow structures of challenging targets relevant for the pharmaceutical industry (membrane proteins, multi-subunit complexes, chromatin complexes etc.) to be determined at unprecedented resolution. This workshop is aimed at members of the pharmaceutical and allied industrial sectors that use (or are considering using) cryo-EM in drug discovery and agricultural research, academic researchers interested in the impact of state-of-the-art cryo-EM in drug discovery, and cryo-EM support staff that want to learn more about the specific needs of industry.
Structural biologists from leading pharmaceutical companies and academia have joined forces to co-organise a science-driven meeting to exchange trends, ideas, use-cases, opportunities and challenges related to the use of cryo-EM in industry and academia.
