"Building tools to enable novice practitioners to use to cryoEM technologies at the National Center for CryoEM Access and Training"

Presented by Christina Zimanyi, NYSBC

Wednesday, September 21, 2022, 1:30 pm — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) is a decades old structural biology technique, but recent advancements in technology have allowed for the determination of near-atomic resolution structures of biomolecules while also making cryoEM more accessible to non-experts. This has led to a large demand for training in best practices. The National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT) is an NIH-sponsored service center in New York City with a mission to lower barriers of access to cryoEM by providing no-cost access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and training. CryoEM encompasses multiple experimental modalities and researchers can be practitioners at varied levels, making one-size-fits-all training inadequate for a broader reach. Our formal training efforts span multiple formats from large webinars to one-on-one immersive training. I will present an overview of how we currently implement access and training to meet our mission, including a collaborative cross-training tool called cryoEM Merit Badges.
