Dear All,

We are pleased to announce a 2.5 day practical workshop on sample preparation for cryo-EM single particle data collection jointly organised by the ESRF, IBS and the EMBL Grenoble. This is the second of a series of practical hands-on workshops started in 2018. This workshop is aimed at PhDs, PostDocs and young scientists new to the field of single particle cryo-EM and will be held at the European Synchrotron and the Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS) in Grenoble, France from May 21st to 23rd, 2019. During the course, participants will learn theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM including prior quality control by negative staining.

There is no registration fee and meals and accommodation during the workshop will be provided free of charge. However, participants should arrange and pay for their own travel to/from Grenoble. A maximum of 12 participants will be selected and we will accept a limited number of participants’ samples to be tested during the workshop. In the case that you plan to bring your own sample, please clearly mention this in your cover letter, also indicating the importance of the project.

Application for the workshop will be open from today, January 31st, 2019 using the link and the deadline for application is March 10th, 2019. Successful candidates will be informed during the first week after the deadline.

Best regards,


(on behalf of the organizers)
