“Cryo Electron Microscopy: Enabling Portugal to Become a World Player in Biological Research and Health”

The field of cryo electron microscopy has undergone a dramatic technological leap in the last ten years. In particular, there have been breakthroughs in electron optics, stage design, fabrication, and recording media, making cryo electron microscopy one of the most rapidly growing technical fields in biological research. Three scientists responsible for inspiring most of these developments were recently awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

In this context, we propose to establish a dedicated cryo facility for life sciences research at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal.  Such a facility will have a profound impact on the Portuguese life sciences research programs.

“Workshop on Electron Microscopy: Bringing together a wide variety of researchers with interests in the science, engineering and technological applications to discuss the use of TEM/STEM and SEM techniques on the characterization and modification of properties of materials.”

The recognition that TEM/STEM and SEM coupled with EELS, EDS and in situ holders can be used as a powerful tool for characterization of materials has been widely established. Recently, the study and development of nanomaterials, a field which is quickly becoming one of the most promising fields of science and technology today, and the development in electron optics, detectors, stage design and fabrication, and recording media has brought an exciting resurgence of interest in TEM. The goal of this symposium is to bring together a wide variety of researchers with interests in the science, engineering and technological applications to discuss the use of TEM/STEM and SEM techniques on the characterization and modification of properties of materials. Abstracts are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas involving the use of TEM/STEM and SEM.
