Michael H.B. Stowell, CCET

Join us and learn about the NIH-funded National Network for Cryo-Electron Tomography

Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) has revolutionized biological research by providing nanometer-scale resolution 3D reconstructions of biological structures, such as purified complexes, viruses, bacteria and archaea, and eukaryotic cells. Michael H.B. Stowell of the CU Boulder Center for Cryo Electron Tomography will present on preparing murine brain sections with HPF, cryo-CLEM, and cryo-FIB techniques. The webinar provides a background on the isolation of tissues, embedding in agar, vibratome sectioning, and use of high-pressure freezing techniques.
