Thanks to the exceptional perspectives of Electron Microscopy an increasing number of
molecular events are being positioned and understood within their detailed cellular
context. Additionally, the possibility to investigate the molecular aspects of living matter at
high resolution has recently come into reach thanks to Cryo-electron Microscopy.
This Advanced Course addresses early stage researchers and young scientists, exposing
them the most advanced ultrastructural methods and techniques applied to the different
branches of life sciences. The Course final aim is to advance the participants’ understanding
on the potentials of Electron Microscopy as a new essential tool for their research.

Liquid phase electron microscopy (LPEM) refers to a class of methods for imaging specimens in liquid with nanometer spatial resolution using electron microscopy. LPEM overcomes the key limitation of electron microscopy: since the electron optics requires a high vacuum, the sample must be stable in a vacuum environment. This Gordon Research Conference aims discussing the latest research results, advances in method, and future directions of LPEM.
