Demystifying Cryo-Electron Tomography: Breaking down applications and workflow

Cryo-Electron Tomography (Cryo-ET) is not just a technique; it's a revolution, offering unprecedented insights into organelles and protein complexes at nanometer resolution in their physiological environments. This technology enables scientists to observe biological structures in their native state, revealing intricate details that were previously inaccessible. The implications for research and understanding mechanistic basis are vast for both basic research, drug discovery and disease. Thanks to ongoing advancements and streamlined workflows, the adoption of cryo-ET has become achievable across various life science disciplines.


Hear from Dr. Dorit Hanein from UC Santa Barbara in an exclusive webinar to explore the Cryo-ET workflow.  

Learn more about:

  • Diverse samples suitable for cryo-ET
  • Significance of cryo-ET in cellular and structural biology
  • How cryo-ET is transforming scientific exploration and commercial innovation

Shaping the future of therapeutics with AI

Wednesday April 3, 2024

6:00 AM PDT| 9:00 AM EDT | 3:00 PM CEST


By delivering greater insight into protein sequence, structure, and function, artificial intelligence and machine learning make it possible to program novel medicines that can treat a variety of diseases.


In this webinar, Dr. Alex Snyder from Generate: Biomedicines will discuss:

  • How generative AI is being leveraged to fill critical gaps in medical treatments by identifying and developing new drug targets
  • The synergistic integration of computational (dry-lab) and experimental (wet-lab) approaches to accelerate the drug development pipeline, leading to more personalized and efficacious medical solutions

Exploring protein kinase regulation by HSP90 using cryo-EM

Learn about the function of HSP90, a central component of signal transduction. With its binding partner CDC37, HSP90 plays a crucial role in activating the protein kinases involved in this signaling process. Using cryo-EM, Dr. Laurence Pearl has identified the structure of the oncogenic protein kinase client BRAFV600E bound to HSP90-CDC3. These studies are instrumental in discovering and developing new treatments for cancer and other diseases.


In this webinar, learn more about:

  • How cryo-EM can be used to study the activation of client protein kinases by the HSP90 complex
  • Understand the mechanism of the PP5 and HSP90 complex to dephosphorylate client proteins, causing a "factory reset"    
  • Describe how cryo-EM and proteomic analysis can provide structural and functional insights into signal transduction

Attaining near-atomic resolution with the Glacios 2 Cryo-TEM using E-CFEG  

A powerful new feature is boosting resolution at 200 kV


The Thermo Scientific Glacios 2 Cryo-Transmission Electron Microscope (cryo-TEM) is a high-throughput, high-resolution 200 kV platform that allows you to easily collect near-atomic data from a broad range of biological targets. This advanced microscope makes cryo-EM more accessible and is ideally suited for single-particle analysis, cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET), and micro-electron diffraction (MicroED) applications.


Listen to our virtual event to learn how combining the Glacios 2 Cryo-TEM with an optional low-energy-spread cold field emission gun (E-CFEG) boosts resolution to near atomic levels.


In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How advances in resolution with E-CFEG on a 200 kV microscope can provide deeper insights
  • The various applications the Glacios 2 Cryo-TEM can support
  • How the Glacios 2 Cryo-TEM can help you bring cryo-EM capabilities into your institution

Life science electron microscopy seminar recordings

Single particle cryo-electron microscopy webinars

Single particle analysis is a cryo-EM technique that enables structural characterization at near-atomic resolutions, unraveling dynamic biological processes and the structure of biomolecular complexes/assemblies.

Cryo-electron tomography webinars

Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) delivers both structural information about individual proteins and their spatial arrangements within the cell. Cryo-ET can bridge the gap between light microscopy and near-atomic-resolution techniques like single-particle analysis. Watch now to see how cryo-ET is opening literal windows into cells.

Micro-electron diffraction webinars

Micro electron diffraction (MicroED) is an exciting new technique with applications in the structural determination of small molecules and proteins. With this method, atomic details can be extracted from individual nanocrystals (<200 nm in size), even in a heterogeneous mixture. Learn how MicroED is transforming structural determination.
