Innovating for Accessibility: A New Era in Cryo-EM

Accessible cryo-EM is revolutionizing structural biology research.

Our virtual launch event Innovating for Accessibility: A New Era in Cryo-EM is now available on-demand. Watch the event replay to learn about how our new, easy-to-use instrument is transforming structural biology research.

  • Overview and accessibility of the Tundra Cryo-TEM
  • Cryo-EM for pharmacology and academic drug discovery research
  • Thermo Fisher financing for cryo-EM microscopes

The Thermo Scientific Tundra Cryo-Transmission Electron Microscope (Cryo-TEM) is a dedicated structure-determination solution designed to bring single particle analysis to every biochemistry laboratory. The Tundra Cryo-TEM enables fresh possibilities in structural research and analysis that have previously been out of reach thanks to simplified sample loading and built-in AI that makes it easier for beginners to use while also increasing productivity for experts. It is easier to use than typical cryo-TEM instruments, fits into a standard lab space, and matches grant mechanisms and funding opportunities globally. The Tundra Cryo-TEM is a powerful tool that can help answer your most challenging research questions, offering structural determination at biologically relevant resolutions.

Speaker: Dr. Bridget Carragher, Co-Director, Simons Electron Microscopy Center
Dr. Bridget Carragher is a biophysicist who has applied software and robotics automation to cryo-EM since working on her PhD at the University of Chicago. Her work in software development, automation, and outreach has helped to make single particle cryo-EM applicable to solving important biological questions in academia and biopharma. Dr. Carragher is the director of the Simons Electron Microscopy Center at New York Structural Biology Center and she is the founder and Chief Operations Officer of the company NanoImaging Services, Inc.​
Speaker: Dr. Richard Henderson, Group Leader, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology
Dr. Richard Henderson is a structural biologist who moved from X-ray and electron crystallography into electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM). His work has helped to make single particle cryo-EM powerful enough to solve many of the outstanding problems in structural biology. Dr. Henderson shared the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Jacques Dubochet and Joachim Frank.
Speaker: Dr. Namandjé Bumpus, Chair, Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences, Johns Hopkins University
Dr. Namandjé Bumpus is a molecular pharmacologist with expertise in drug development. Her research has identified cellular signaling events that underlie drug-induced toxicities, and established the pathways of metabolism for several clinically important infectious disease therapeutics. Dr. Bumpus is the E.K. Marshall and Thomas H. Maren Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Speaker: Suzanne Graham
Suzanne Graham is the Senior Director of Global Business and Market Development for the Life Science Electron Microscopy Business, within the Materials & Structural Analysis Division of Thermo Fisher Scientific. Suzanne brings over 20 years of experience in the life science industry having worked in senior marketing strategy and commercial management positions at Roche Diagnostics and PerkinElmer.
Speaker: Dr. Anke Mulder, Product Marketing Leader, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Anke Mulder is the product marketing leader for non-traditional cryo-EM customers in the life sciences business unit of the Materials and Structural Analysis Division at Thermo Fisher Scientific. Dr. Mulder started her scientific career in electron microscopy image processing with Nobel Laureate Dr. Joachim Frank and holds a Ph.D in Biophysics from The Scripps Research Institute.
Speaker: Dr. Jeff Lengyel, Americas Principal Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Jeff Lengyel is the Americas Principal Scientist for Electron Microscopy Life Sciences in the Materials ad Structural Analysis Division at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
