Strengthening the Electron Microscopy Core in Bristol: Workshop 1

IAS Research Workshop Series

10.00 - 13.30, Verdon Smith Room, Institute for Advanced Studies, Royal Fort House


Mrs Judith Mantell, Research Assistant, School of Biochemistry / Wolfson Bioimaging Facility

Dr. Paul Verkade, Reader in Cell Biology, Schools of Biochemistry and Physiology & Pharmacology, Head of the EM unit of the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility

Electron Microscopy (EM) is a vital imaging and analysis technique used in many disciplines throughout the University. The aim of the workshops is to provide a central platform where all Bristol Electron Microscopists can meet, share and develop our knowledge.

The purposes of the workshops are to develop:

  • An interdisciplinary knowledge network of our technical strengths and weaknesses
  • Web links or dedicated web  resource that captures all the EM facilities in Bristol
  • A regular forum to update our knowledge in this active and diverse field
The new focus developed in this series of workshops will provide a platform for the development of collaborative equipment bids.
