How is electron microscopy being used to advance research?

Below is a selection of thought-provoking interviews along with new products that will help you push the boundaries of science. Watch these videos to learn more about some of our exciting new innovations and how our customers are using electron microscopy to advance their research.



Human Technopole's New Cryo-EM Facility & Centre for Structural Biology


Hear from the Human Technopole team about their new state-of-the-art facility making cryo-EM access widely available to the scientific community. This advanced facility is equipped with several instruments, including the Thermo Scientific Krios G4 Cryo-TEMGlacios Cryo-TEMTalos L120C TEMAquilos 2 Cryo-FIB, and Spectra 300 S/TEM.

Dr. Erica Saphire on how cryo-EM is advancing her virus research


Prof. Erica Ollmann Saphire from La Jolla Institute for Immunology discusses how cryo-EM has been a winner to understand a range of virus structures from Ebola to SARS-CoV-2 leading to insights for drugs and vaccine development.

Sars-CoV-2 research at UT-Austin


Prof. Jason McLellan answers questions about spike protein structure, cryo-EM and vaccine trials with collaborators at NIH. Filmed in March 2020, video courtesy of The University of Texas at Austin.

Prof. Briegel and new discoveries in microbes with CryoET


Prof. Ariane Briegel from Leiden University was plenary speaker at ASM Microbe 2019. She discusses how cryo-electron tomography is overcoming research barriers faced in microbiology and gives her top tips for working with the technology.

Prof. Villa and role of cryoET in Parkinson's research


Prof. Elizabeth Villa from UCSD describes the role of cryo-tomography which brings structural biology to cell biology in order to look at structure and function of key proteins for better understanding of disease mechanisms.

Interview with Tamir Gonen and MicroED


MicroED method developer Dr. Tamir Gonen's current research at UCLA focuses on the structures and functions of medically important membrane proteins that are involved in homeostasis.

Dr. Paolo Swuec on the cryo-EM structure on cardiac amyloid fibrils


Dr. Paolo Swuec from the University of Milan discusses his investigation of the structure and function of macromolecular complexes such as viruses, membrane proteins and amyloid filaments.

Dr. Vinoth KR on the role of cryo-EM in membrane protein research


Dr. Vinoth KR from NCBS-TFR discusses how cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) plays a role in understanding the structure, dynamics and function of membrane proteins to determine how they relate to diseases and drug discovery.

MM 2019 Krios Solution: The Highest Productivity in the Most Compact Design


Dr. Steve Reyntjens, Director of Product Marketing for Cryo-EM happily announces our new Krios solution and gives an overview of the benefits that allow greater access to cryo-EM.

MM 2019 Dr. Cameron Varano on cryo-EM and the future of cancer research


Dr. Varano speaks to how cryo-EM is being used to answer “hard questions that matter” at the Center of Structural Oncology, Penn State University.

MM 2019 Prof. Jeffrey Salisbury and 3D electron microscopy


Prof. Salisbury from the Mayo Clinic discusses his over 45 years of microscopy experience to answer various biological questions including recent 3D investigations with serial block face imaging to look at structure in normal and disease states.

MM 2019 Dr. Marc Storms and cryo-EM development perspective


Dr. Marc Storms looks back at over 20 years in cryo-EM development, past scientific achievements within the structural biology academic community, rise in drug discovery applications and cellular biology research.

MM 2019 Electron microscopy at the University of Chicago


Director Jotham Austin & Dr. Tera Lavoie from Advanced Electron Microscopy Center at Univ. of Chicago discuss the center’s correlative microscopy vision and how they support diverse research from cancer, asthma, diabetes, brain and biochemistry.
