Biopharma has begun to exploit the new capability of cryo electron microscopy to deliver high resolution protein structures for non-crystallizable proteins. Drug and biologics design projects are benefitting from this new technology that comprises complex and expensive facilities. How are Massachusetts practitioners navigating this space and implementing workflows?

Join us for this Drug Discovery working group forum exploring where the enterprise of applying cryo electron microscopy stands and what different approaches and experiences there are.

  • Case studies of cryo-EM implementation and project impact by local biotech and biopharma
  • Strategies and approaches taken - outsourcing, in-house, or mixed models
  • Discussion on the current and future potential of cryo-EM in industry
  • Local Cryo EM university core facilities will be invited to join this interactive discussion
