Registration is now open for a 2 day practical workshop on sample preparation for cryo-EM single particle data collection jointly organised by the ESRF, EMBL Grenoble and the IBS. This is the first of a series of practical hand-on workshops to come in the future. 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 in Grenoble, France from September 18th to 19th 2018. During the course, participants will learn theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation for single particle cryo-EM.

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(s), please clearly mention this in your cover letter, also indicating the importance of the project. Application for the workshop should be supported by a motivation letter and a CV. 

The deadline for application is August 31st. Successful candidates will be informed during the first week of September.
