ERA Chair Holder to establish the electron cryo-microscopy analysis of cellular and artificial nanomachines

Project description

Supporting and consolidating cryo-electron microscopy infrastructure in Greece

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is an imaging technique that allows scientists to observe and decipher the structure of materials, cells and biomolecular complexes at high resolution. Cryo-EM uses an electron microscope with a cold stage and large-scale image processing software capable of generating functional information. The EU-funded hot4cryo project will support the establishment of a cryo-EM Unit at the National Hellenic Research Foundation (NHRF) in Greece – the first of its kind in the Balkan area and the whole South East Europe. The project will fund the recruitment of a prominent researcher together with a high-quality support team. The generated cryo-EM infrastructure will serve as a research hub for the region, fostering fundamental and applied research opportunities of outstanding quality.
