The next installment of the monthly methods-focused webinar series hosted by Stanford-SLAC CryoEM Center (S2C2) along with the National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT), and the Pacific Northwest Center for CryoEM (PNCC) will be held on Thursday December 3, 2020 at 12 PM EDT / 9AM PDT Dr. Sudha Chakrapani, Joseph T. Wearn, MD University Professor in Medicine at Case Western Reserve University will talk about her work Understanding gating mechanisms in Pentameric Ligand-Gated Ion Channels by CryoEM Talk Abstract: My group is interested in structure, function and dynamics of pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs). The pLGICs are central players in mediating fast synaptic transmission in the neuronal- and neuromuscular junctions. My talk will focus on two members of [...]
The National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT), along with the Pacific Northwest Center for CryoEM (PNCC), and the Stanford-SLAC CryoEM Center (S2C2) are hosting a monthly webinar series featuring center users who will highlight cryoEM methods used in their research. Representatives from all three service centers will also be on hand to answer questions about the cryoEM resources available to biomedical researchers and how to access them. Our second webinar is Thursday October 29, 2020 at 12 PM EDT / 9AM PDT Dr. Farzad Jalali-Yazdi, Postdoctoral Fellow at Oregon Health and Science University will talk about his work on Sample preparation vs. data collection conditions for high-resolution CryoEM structures of NMDARs Talk Abstract: NMDA receptors are [...]
The National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT), along with the Pacific Northwest Center for CryoEM (PNCC), and the Stanford-SLAC CryoEM Center (S2C2) are hosting a new monthly webinar series. Talks will highlight work from scientists that have used center resources to further their biomedical research programs with a focus on cryoEM methods. We hope the Q&A session after the seminar will stimulate discussion of best practices and interesting challenges that will be helpful to researchers new to the field. Representatives from all three national service centers will also be on hand to answer questions about the cryoEM resources available to biomedical researchers and how to access them. Our inaugural seminar is September 24, 2020 at 12 PM EDT [...]
It's summer meeting time! Come find us at our M&M virtual booth (Booth #29, August 3-7) or our ACA poster (Poster #4-22 in Session IV on Thursday 8/6), to learn how the national CryoEM service centers and the Transformative High Resolution Cryo-Electron Microscopy Program can further your research. We hope to "see" you there!
Working remotely couldn't stop us from officially welcoming our three newest microscopes. Glacios "Alison" & Krios6 "Caitlin" were signed off at the end of March. Krios5 "Nathaniel" was signed off at the end of June (after achieving a sub-2Å reconstruction!), bringing our family of microscopes close to completion. Thanks to all the hard work from the ThermoFisher team and our SEMC staff!
