Events Workshops & Conferences

Since 2004, we at MiTeGen have sponsored and attended numerous events, meetings, workshops and conferences. These include those pertaining to Cryo-EM, Crystallography, Structural Biology and more. While we are in the business of supplying researchers with products and services supporting their work in the fields of Cryo-EM, Crystallography, Structural Biology, Material Science and beyond, we are also deeply committed to supporting our industry and the people within it through our sponsorship and attendance.

Use this page to discover upcoming industry events, meetings, workshops and conferences we are sponsoring and/or attending. For those events we are attending we would very much like to meet you in person. See listings below for how to find us at event.

This page also lists past events we have been involved in.

If you have an event, meeting, workshop or conference you would like us to sponsor, please visit our sponsorship request form to submit it for review.

Seminar On Radiation Damage and Ice Formation in Biomolecular Structure Determination Using X-rays and Electrons

Date: December 10, 2019

Location: Cambridge, UK

MRC Laboratory Of Molecular Biology

Learn how radiation damage and ice formation are major obstacles to probing biomolecular structure and function using X-rays and electrons. And how cooling to cryogenic temperatures suppresses diffusion and reduces radiation damage per unit dose, increasing both the amount and resolution of structural data that may be obtained.
