Webinar June 2022 – Dr. habil. Meister

On Wednesday, June 29, 2022, an online seminar on "How Transmission Electron Microscopy helps to understand soft matter aggregation?" will be held at 3.30 p.m. (CEST).

The speaker will be Priv.-Doz. Dr. habil. Annette Meister from the Martin Luther Univeristy Halle-Wittenberg, Germany.


After a short introduction presenting the most recent examples in high resolution cryo electron microscopy (EM) of membrane proteins, this seminar will rather focus on morphological EM studies with self-assembled soft matter aggregates. Different preparation techniques for EM samples, as well as advantages, disadvantages, and artefacts of negative stain and cryo EM will be discussed considering the following questions:

  • Negative stain or cryo EM: Is cryo always better?
  • Structural pathways of vesicle solubilization: Is there a limit?
  • Visualization of nanodiscs: What can we learn from negative stain and cryo EM?
