At Human Technopole, the mission of the Structural Biology Centre is to gain a precise knowledge of the structure of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes, which is essential to understand how they function. To this aim, the Cryo-EM Facility is designed to efficiently combine Single-Particle Analysis (SPA), Electron Tomography (ET) and Correlative Light Electron Microscopy (CLEM) workflows to study in detail the structure of single macromolecules as well as whole cellular compartments.

During the Cryo-EM Symposium, external world-leading scientists in the field of electron microscopy as well as members of the HT Structural Biology Centre will present their research. Together with experts from leading international research centres, we will engage in a stimulating discussion on the role of structural cellular biology in human health and disease.

Participants will be able to tour the state-of-the-art Cryo-EM Facility currently set up on the Human Technopole campus.
