HiLIFE symposium: Exploring Cellular Complexity by Cryo-EM

Helsinki, Finland, 28th February 2019


This one-day symposium organised by HiLIFE – Helsinki Institute of Life Science will showcase uses of cryo-EM (cryogenic electron microscopy) in studying biological mechanisms at different levels of complexity - ranging from macromolecules to cells. Distinguished international speakers will discuss how cryo-EM is now helping to understand illness and how it is starting to inform drug discovery. We welcome anyone who is interested in hearing about cutting-edge science and methods bridging cell biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, virology, and microbiology.

Distinguished international speakers

The opening keynote talk will be given by Richard Henderson, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2017.
