Just over a year ago, we launched our Accelerating Microscopy blog as a way to explore and uncover the field of microscopy.
Through interviews with scientists, like Paolo Swuec of University of Milan and Dennis and Marina Manuel of Houston Electron Microscopy, we were able to hear directly from the researchers about how they’re using electron microscopy to accelerate science.
We dove into the state of today’s deadliest viruses and diseases to examine how cryo-EM is being used to help advance research around breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Ebola, Zika, malaria, influenza, HIV, and Prion disease.
In addition, we showcased how schools across the United States, from high schools to universities, are using microscopy to expand scientific exploration. AMSA, a charter school in Marlborough, Massachusetts, became the first public institution in the state to house its own SEM. UC San Diego is working to build batteries of the future. And the University of Oregon welcomed the first Helios Hydra in North America.
Lastly, we introduced a number of new initiatives that can help researchers around the globe enhance their knowledge and research. Cryo-EM University, part of EM-learning.com, is a first-of-its-kind online training program designed to help researchers of all levels become proficient in cryo-EM. Our supplemental Scientific Workflows app brings this support directly to your fingertips.
We are looking forward to continuing to share more electron microscopy news and updates in the year to come. If you would like to receive new posts via email, click here to subscribe to Accelerating Microscopy.
