Upcoming Events

Frontiers in Electron Tomography

The Molecular Foundry will host an event Oct. 23 to 26 featuring a workshop, a short course on electron tomography, and presentations and training courses on atomic electron tomography and other topics related to quantitative 3D characterization. This 4-day event will bring together leading figures, junior scientists, postdocs and students in the fields of electron tomography and 3D electron imaging/diffraction to disseminate results and exchange ideas. Registration ends Sept. 15.
