The cryo-electron microscope installed on the Imperial College London Hammersmith Campus produces its first beam, coinciding, fittingly, with the award of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, to Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Franck and Richard Henderson, “for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.”
As a selected participant, Katalin Kondas attends the EMBO Practical Course “High-throughput protein production and crystallization”, 6 – 14 July 2017 in Harwell, Oxfordshire, UK.
