Cryo-EM User Resources

Introduction to Cryo-EM

Users who are new to cryogenic electron microscopy can review a collection of papers, online video courses, and a training manual prepared by the New York Structural Biology Center.

Protocols and Software

Instructions on microscope usage, sample preparation, and data analysis can be viewed by trained users at our internal cryo-EM website.

We are working to make these resources more broadly available to our users, but currently, you must be a registered user and on the CUIMC campus network (or use VPN) to access these pages.


Instrument reservations are managed through the iLab core facility management system. Reservations for some instruments are self-managed, but high resolution imaging time is centrally managed by the facility. Contact the CEC for more information on user policies.
