Challenges in biological cryo electron microscopy: Faraday Discussion


  • Sample preparation in single particle cryo-EM
  • Pushing the limits in single particle cryo-EM
  • Tomographic analysis, CLEM
  • Map/model validation and dealing with the expansion of the EM community

Faraday Discussions remain amongst the only conferences to distribute the speakers’ research papers in advance, allowing the majority of each meeting to be devoted to discussion in which all delegates can participate. Following each meeting a written record of the discussion is published alongside the papers in the Faraday Discussions journal.

Being a supporting organisation would involve the Biochemical Society publicising this conference to your members; I would be grateful if you would be able to provide a mention of the event on the Biochemical Society website and include details of the meeting in any newsletters or e-alerts that you send to your contacts. In return for your support, your members would be entitled to a discounted registration fee and we would of course acknowledge your support on the website.

  • Helen Saibil (Introductory Lecturer), Birkbeck, University of London, United Kingdom
  • Werner Kühlbrandt (Closing Remarks), Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, Germany
