The first meeting of the SOLARIS Industry Day series is already behind us!

The first meeting of the SOLARIS Industry Day series is already behind us!

Last Friday 13.05.2022, the SOLARIS Centre hosted the first of a series of meetings dedicated to users from the world of industry. This time the meeting was dedicated to Cryo-EM technique. Throughout the day, our and invited specialists introduced participants to the basics of this modern research technique.

A one-day workshop on Cryo-EM technique

The meeting was held as a free one-day workshop. The workshop participants were representatives of the life sciences industry, as well as the pharmaceutical or chemical industry. The workshop covered all aspects of the cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) technique, from sample preparation, measurements on the microscope, analysis of the results, and applications, to comparison with other methods, including crystallography.

The participants of the meeting had the opportunity to see the microscopes, which stand in the SOLARIS Centre, talk directly with our operators and ask any questions concerning Cryo-EM technique. During the meeting, a significant amount of time has been reserved for networking and the exchange of experiences.


Meeting agenda

Not only experts from the SOLARIS Centre but also specialists from the MCB of the Jagiellonian University or research institutes in Warsaw shared their knowledge in the field of structural biology.
