Third Coast Workshop on Biological Cryo-EM announced for May 19, 2018

March 19, 2018 • 9:00am – 6:00pm
Gordon Center for Integrative Science, University of Chicago



As announced a few months ago, a new version of our very successful Third Coast cryo-EM Workshop is being programmed for May 19th at the Gordon Center for Integrative Sciences at the University of Chicago.

Following last year format, we will have a full day of talks and discussions led by key luminaries in the application of cryo electron microscopy and associated computational approaches to the structure of macromolecules, macromolecular complexes and subcellular structures. In this version of the program (included below) we are privileged to have Prof. Michael Rossmann (Purdue University) as this year’s keynote lecturer.

The website is now live at and includes a registration link. There is no cost to attend the Workshop. However, this year, we will close the registration process as soon as the capacity of the auditorium is reached. For that reason, we strongly encourage you to register early, given the unexpected (overwhelming!) response last year. Furthermore, we strongly encourage all attendants to submit posters for discussion during the Workshop. This is a fantastic opportunity to show your work to a receptive community, whether it is ready for prime time, or not.

Given the stellar roster of speakers, we expect to have an exciting workshop where the key cryo-EM topics of the moment will be presented and debated. Personally, we are very much looking forward to seeing you and interacting with you later in May.

All the best,

The Organizing Committee
