The Cryo-EM Revolution Briefing w/ Dr. Eva Nogales and Reception
The Biophysical Society and Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA-13) will host Dr. Eva Nogales for a Congressional Briefing titled The Cryo-EM Revolution on March 26 from 4:00 - 6:00pm in the room 2060 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM) is a biophysical technique that can be used to determine the structure of biological molecules. The images generated by Cryo-EM have assisted researchers in visualizing the biological molecules of our cells.

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).
