The 4th ESRF Workshop on sample preparation will take place from 9-11 June 2020.

This 2.5-day practical workshop is the fourth of a series of practical hands-on workshops and is aimed at PhDs, PostDocs and scientists new to the field of single particle cryo-EM. 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 are expected to arrange and pay for their own travel to/from Grenoble. A maximum of 12 participants will be selected and a limited number of participants’ samples will be tested during the workshop. In the case that you plan to bring your own sample(s), please clearly mention this in your cover letter, also indicating the importance of the project.

Application for the workshop is open and the deadline for application is 29 March 2020. Successful candidates will be informed during the first week after the deadline.
