In 2017, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three scientists who played key roles in developing Cryo-EM. The technique is now quickly becoming an important scientific tool that will impact many areas of human health, including drug discovery and development. Dr. Nogales will discuss the history of the technology, how it is used today, and share some potential future policy recommendations to further its development.
The event will coincide with the annual Biophysics Week, a messaging week that calls attention to the field of biophysics. The briefing is sponsored by the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), JEOL.USA, the Lawrence Berkeley National Labratory (LBNL), and Thermo Fisher Scientific, in partnership with the University of California – Berkeley (UC-Berkeley).
