New Electron Microscopy Approaches for Studying Protein Complexes and Cellular Supramolecular Architecture

New Electron Microscopy Approaches for Studying Protein Complexes and Cellular Supramolecular Architecture

Objective

The aim of this proposal is to make Europe the leader in three-dimensional electron microscopy analysis. The integration of the leading European laboratories in electron microscopy in the 3D-EM Network of Excellence is suggested as a fundamental tool to develop standardized procedures and innovative equipments for comprehensive structural analysis based on advances in electron microscopy. These will be made accessible to the Biological and Medical communities via the creation of state-of-the-art centers with adequate regional distribution to provide access to instrumentation and protocols developed within the Network. The inclusion of the internationally leading manufacturer for high performance instrumentation for life sciences, FEI Electron Optics, in the 3D-EM network will guarantee a close interaction of academic and applied research within the network and an immediate transfer of knowledge from basic science to industrial application.
