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.
