[phenixbb] Spring 2016 MicroED workshops at Janelia Research Campus

Due to high demand, two back-to-back MicroED workshops will be held at Janelia Research Campus (Ashburn, VA) in the spring.  The workshops are hosted by Tamir Gonen and will have the same content.  Accepted participants will be assigned by the organizers to one or the other (not both).

  May 21-24 and May 24-27, 2017

MicroED is a cryoEM method that uses electron diffraction to facilitate structure determination from sub-micron sized 3D crystals,
eliminating the need to grow large crystals.  MicroED uses equipment and procedures that are standard on many cryoTEM:s, and because of this the technique can be easily adopted in labs and facilities around the world.  To facilitate the widespread use of MicroED, we are offering these workshops to teach microscopists how to perform the technique and adopt it at their own institutions.

There is no registration fee for participation, and Janelia will provide on-site housing and meals.  Attendees are expected to cover their own travel expenses and must be able to stay for the duration.  Applicants must register and submit a brief statement on why they wish to participate, via our online registration system.


Please note that this system is designed to collect abstract information for presentations.  Please write your statement of interest in the "abstract" field, put your name in the "author" field, and put "n/a" in the "presentation title" and "keyword" fields.

Space in these workshops is limited.  The application deadline is February 10, 2017.
