           The course will focus on structural biology using Transmission
Electron Microscopy and aims to teach the participants the basic principles
and practical aspects of specimen preparation, Image processing and 3D
reconstruction in Single Particle Cryo Electron Microscopy(SPCryoEM) and
Cellular Tomography.  This is a hands-on course, in which theory and
practicals are tightly intertwined.  There will be practical session to
teach sample preparation for Single particle –ve stain and cryoEM.   The
topics covered will suit both the new entrants to the field as well as
those who wants to acquire an in-depth understanding  of  the fundamental
principles and practical aspects.   Applications are invited from PhD
students, Post Docs and Researchers (Faculties/PI’s and protein
crystallographers) who wish to acquire knowledge in SPCryoEM and Cellular
Tomography.  Applicants from all over the world are encouraged to
apply.  For more information please contact the course coordinator at
*cem3dip2018 at iisertvm.ac.in
<cem3dip2018 at iisertvm.ac.in>*.

            *The basic format of the course* will be theoretical lectures
in the mornings followed by hands on practical session on specimen
preparation and image processing on computer workstations in the
afternoon.  Evenings will be reserved for poster presentations by the
participants and research talks by the participants/instructors.

*The instructors/speakers for the course will include:* Tony Crowther
(MRC-LMB), Wah Chiu (Stanford University), Jack Johnson (TSRI), Marin van
Heel (Leiden University), Edward Morris (ICR), Paula da Fonseca (MRC-LMB),
Peter Rosenthal (TFCI), Carsten Sachse (EMBL Heidelberg), Sara Sandin
(NTU), Ardan Patwardhan (EMBL-EBI), Maya Topf (Birkbeck), Srinivasan N
(IISc), Tanmay Bharath (Dunn School of Pathology), Agnel Praveen
(Birkbeck), Tanveer Hussain(IISc), Sonja Welsh (FEI - part of Thermo Fisher
Scientific), Jayati Sengupta (IICB), Manidipa Banerjee (IIT Delhi),
Ramanathan Natesh (IISER Thiruvananthapuram), Vinothkumar KR(NCBS), Partha
Pratim Datta (IISER Kolkota), Somnath Dutta (IISc).

The selection will be based on applicants CV, current research project,
relevant skills, future plans and most importantly the quality of the
submitted poster  abstract.  Applicants should include in the section “Current
research Project and Statement of Purpose” an explanation of why attendance
at the course would further the applicant's own research.   Having some
preliminary data or exposure to electron microscopy /cryoEM/ tomography
will be preferred.  PhD and Postdoctoral applicants should request their
supervisor to send a recommendation letter, before the application
deadline, by e-mail directly to the organizer at cem3dip2018 at iisertvm.ac.in.
  Only selected people from the applicants will be contacted.  Based on
availability of funds, travel and/or registration, accommodation bursaries
for subset of selected applicants can be provided.  If you want to request
for registration and/or accommodation bursaries, mention that explicityly
in the space for ‘Justification for Travel Grant’ and Justify your
request.   All
registered participants have to present posters on their research work.  A
selection of participants will be invited to give oral presentation of
their ongoing research work.

We shall truly appreciate if this e-mail print out can be displayed at your
Institute notice board and circulated among your friends, scholars and
students encouraging them to apply for this course.
