10th New England CryoEM Symposium—Oct 27&28

Meeting program download: 
The 10th New England Cryo-EM Symposium is set to take place on October 27th (full-day meeting) and 28th (additional free discussions), 2023, at Yale University. Hosted by Yale’s the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and the Department of Pharmacology, this year’s symposium will emphasize the progress on “High-resolution Cryo-EM/ET in the Cellular Environment”. The event will cover a diverse range of topics related to but is not limited this theme. Other excellent topics spanning from technical advances to very important biological findings will all be considered. The symposium also serves as an excellent platform for graduate students and postdoctoral trainees to showcase their exciting research.
At the end of this event, there will be a session for open discussion, led by several cryo-EM/ET experts. The goal of this discussion is to facilitate open dialogues that delve into a series of technical challenges, aiming for future high-resolution subcellular structures via advancements in cryo-EM, cryo-ET and many other related technologies. 
Additionally, we are very pleased to offer “The Best Poster Awards” to 3-5 exceptional students/postdocs in the New England area, in recognition of their recent progress in the broad cryo-EM/ET field. The award will include not only a monetary prize but also free high-end microscope time, generously provided by our sponsors.
Please contact Dr. Jack Zhang and/or Dr. Joel Butterwick if you would like to present in the meeting or have any questions.

Best Poster Awards: Four-Step Evaluation Procedure

Step 1 – Voting: All conference attendees are granted the option to voluntarily participate in voting. They may select and rank up to three posters that they deem to be the most outstanding.

Step 2 – Preliminary Tally: Conference volunteers will collate and analyze the received votes to produce a shortlist of the top 3-5 candidates for the Best Poster Awards. The specific number of shortlisted candidates is contingent upon the final budget allocated for the awards.

Step 3 – Award Confirmation: The Conference Organizing Committee will review the shortlist to officially confirm the awardees. Once confirmed, the winners of the Best Poster Awards will be publicly announced.

Step 4 – Award Incentives: The confirmed awardees will receive a monetary prize along with partial reimbursement for travel expenses. The monetary reward will be disbursed by the Conference Organizing Committee. Further, the committee will facilitate networking opportunities between the awardees and relevant stakeholders at Shuimu BioSciences (水木未来). The most exceptional awardee will also receive high-end microscope time for free cryo-EM data collection from Shuimu.
