Cryo-TEM Imaging & Sample Vitrification: For single particle analysis

Sunday - Thursday, November 12-16, 2023

Bldg. 3 – Level 0


The KAUST Imaging and Characterization Core Lab (IAC), Electron Microscopy (EM) Unit, invites researchers to an enriching week of training in Cryo-TEM Imaging and Sample Vitrification for single particle analysis. This training is designed to provide attendees with comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience in specimen preparation (vitrification), fundamental TEM and electron-optics, low-dose electron imaging, and data collection and processing.

During the training, participants will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals and practical applications of Cryo-TEM imaging and sample vitrification. The program includes both theoretical lessons and practical sessions to ensure a well-rounded learning experience.


  • Theoretical Lessons are open to 30 users

    The minimal prerequisites are basic/intermediate knowledge of TEM imaging.

  • Practical Sessions are open to 6 users

    The mandatory prerequisites are good knowledge and mastery of TEM imaging techniques.


    Please register here for the theoretical lessons only or both theoretical and practical by October 26, 12:00 PM. (Can this be extended?)


    For questions, please email iac.em@kaust.edu.sa.

    This opportunity is brought to you by the KAUST Core Labs
