What is this school and for whom?
The international school "Modern cryoelectron microscopy" is organized by the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the Lomonosov Moscow State University. The purpose of the event is to familiarize students, graduate students, researchers of academic and scientific organizations with a modern and dynamically developing structural research method - cryoelectron microscopy. The school is a three-day intensive course on the methods used in cryoelectron microscopy, including theoretical training, an overview of the modern world instrumentation infrastructure, sample preparation methods, conducting experiments and analyzing the results. The spectrum of topics covered suits attendees that are new to the field as well as those for whom the technique is already of growing importance in their research and who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of the methodology. Educational lectures and master classes will be given. Leading researchers in the field of cryoelectron microscopy from Russia, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany and France will be tutors of the school.
The number of participants is limited. School participants are expected to give a presentation of their current project.
The language of the school is English.
The advantages of modern cryo-electron microscopes
Why is this topic so popular in recent years?
The heterogeneity of the samples, the problems associated with biological samples
Tomography and single particle analysis
Validation of structures, how to evaluate their correctness?
What determines method resolution?
All invited tutors is experienced lecturers and instructors are all users of cryoelectron microscopy infrastructure and methods.

Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (“Phystech”) is the leading institute of higher education in Russian Federation training highly-qualified specialists in various areas of modern science and technology. The institute has a rich history. Its founders and early staff members were Nobel Prize winners P.L Kapitsa, N.N Semenov, and L.D. Landau. Nobel Prize winners are among its graduates as well. Many “Phystech” professors are leading scientists in Russia, among which are more than 80 academics and corresponding members of the Russian Academy of Sciences. From the beginning, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology has used a unique system for training specialists, known commonly as the “Phystech System,” which combines fundamental education, engineering disciplines, and student scientific research. Now the Institute is developing unique scientific infrastructure to carry out the cutting edge research in many fields of science.
