International School

Modern cryoelectron microscopy

May 30 - June 1, 2019

International School

The Research center for molecular mechanism of aging and age-related diseases, Landau Phystech-School of Physics & Research of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) invites you to participate in the International School "Modern cryo-electron microscopy".

Cryo-electron microscopy is an experimental method with the growing popularity for research in the field of structural biology that allows to determine the structure of macromolecular complexes with much higher resolution.

There will be 3 days of lectures and master classes on the methods used in cryo-electron microscopy:

  • Theory and practice of cryo-electron microscopy;
  • Principles of operation of electron microscopes and review of modern world instrument infrastructure;
  • Introduction to Fourier transforms and imaging principles;
  • Sample preparation features;
  • data collection strategies and basic image processing workflows for the three main methods of modern cryo-electron microscopy: tomography, particle analysis, and two-dimensional crystallography.

Lecturers are leading researchers in the field of cryo-electron microscopy from Russia, Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, USA.

The working language is English.

Organizers: Moscow Institute of Physics and Technologies and the Lomonosov Moscow State University.

Intended participants: students, postgraduates and researchers of Russian and foreign academic and scientific organizations.

Dates and venue: May 30 – June 1, 2019 in MIPT (Dolgoprudny, Russia).
