Home Events Webinar: Advances in Cellular Tomography

We are hosting a webinar on Tuesday 20th July to discuss new technologies coming to the Franklin and potential applications.

High resolution, large volume cellular tomography has the potential to change our understanding of life. This technology will give researchers access to atomic level detail of proteins within the context of the cell.

A collaboration between the Rosalind Franklin Institute, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Diamond Light source funded by Wellcome, has allowed us to produce a unique electron microscope capable of doing large volume cellular tomography for the first time.

In this webinar, we will further discuss this exciting new technology and potential applications within academia and industry.

Outline programme:

12:30 – 12:40: Introduction to the Franklin

12:40 – 12:45: Outlining of the Industry challenge from Gillian Burgess, a Franklin board member and Head of Research at GrĂ¼nenthal

12:45 – 13:10: Overview of technology and future plans from Jim Naismith, Director of the Rosalind Franklin Institute, and Steve Reyntjens, Product Marketing Director at Thermo Fisher Scientific
