Meeting Summary



Cryo-EM is now the state-of-the-art methodology for the visualization of biological systems from low to high resolution and with various levels of complexities, from small macromolecular complexes all the way to subcellular organizations. Fast-evolving cryo-EM imaging and data processing have recently started to illuminate the inner workings of complicated and dynamic biological assemblies with a level of detail we have never seen before. This meeting will showcase cryo-EM breakthroughs in addressing crucial problems in cell biology and will further highlight the use of cryo-EM as a platform for the integration of data from orthogonal biophysical and biochemical approaches. The meeting will include four themes: 1) Single-particle cryo-EM with a special focus on the characterization of the conformational ensemble adopted by macromolecular complexes and with aim of delineating their mechanism of action; 2) Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) and correlative light electron microscopy (CLEM) to visualize cellular organizations and their dynamics; 3. The emergence of cryo-EM as tool for drug discovery and translational research through both high-resolution structure determination and characterization of cellular phenotypes; and 4) Recent developments in specimen preparation and image acquisition. Accordingly, the meeting aims to attract a diverse audience with interest in cryo-EM applications from both academia and industry, and far beyond the traditional cryo-EM specialists. The symposium will also feature workshops in specimen preparation and evaluation of suitability for cryo-EM, modeling of structures using cryo-EM data, and how to set up a cryo-EM lab.
