Thermo Fisher Scientific Cryo-EM User Group Meeting 2018

April 24–25, 2018, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

The Thermo Fisher Scientific Cryo-EM User Group Meeting 2018 aims to create a unique opportunity for open discussion among Cryo-EM professionals, as well as Thermo Fisher Scientific employees, in which you can share your experience as well as your personal challenges in the field of Cryo-EM research.

  • Take the chance to network with other Cryo-EM users across international borders.
  • Hear more about, and provide input to, Thermo Fisher Scientific’s vision and general strategy on Cryo-EM and other important perspectives on Cryo-EM research.
  • Learn best practices from the application specialists on how to prepare cryo samples and to set up the instruments for the best single particle analysis experiments.

We will also present on various topics, with experts in the field sharing their experiences and highlighting the best known methods. Join fellow Thermo Scientific™ Krios™ and Talos Arctica™ Cryo-TEM users for open discussions where you can share your experiences as well as challenges in Cryo-EM research.

Furthermore, Thermo Fisher Scientific Service will update you on all activities being undertaken to service your tools and run your workflows.

Due to space restrictions, we kindly ask you to limit the number of participants to two per team or facility. Since we have limited capacity for the factory tour and tool demonstrations, it is advisable that you register early. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. This two-day event is free; however, travel and lodging are at the attendee’s expense and are not covered by Thermo Fisher Scientific. Please send any questions to Linda van Driel at linda.van.driel@thermofisher.com.

Due to space restrictions, we would kindly like to ask you to register for the parallel sessions and factory tour by 9 March, 2018.
