Registration opens 14th January 2022 and closes 30th January 2022. Participants will be informed by 7th February 2022 if they have been successful.

Day 1 will consist of a demonstration of the protocol that all attendees will be learning, setting up EPU single particle data acquisition on a Titan Krios microscope. On days 2-3, attendees will perform remote set up with help from their tutor. There will be opportunity for 1 days direct ‘hands-on’ with the microscope per attendee and observation of your course mates to reinforce learning. Day 4 will introduce image processing concepts, real-time analysis and strategies for refinement after data collection. Attendees will be in small groups of 4 for the practical sessions. 20 places available.
