HOME ABOUT News Professor Bridget Carragher set to speak at mmc2017

03 - 06 July 2017, Manchester, UK

Professor Bridget Carragher confirmed as a Plenary Speaker at mmc2017

Professor Bridget Carragher joins Professor John Spence in our line-up of Plenary Speakers at mmc2017. Professor Carragher is currently Professor at the New York Structural Biology Centre (NYSBC) and a Director of their Electron Microscopy department where she aims to investigate the intermolecular interactions and domain architectures of macromolecules within their native cellular assemblies.

Professor Carragher is one of the leaders of the “Resolution Revolution” in the Cryo EM field. She has been one of the early adapters of the Direct Electron Detectors and as part of NRAMM (National Resource for Automated Molecular Microscopy) worked on the development of Leginon, an automated software for image acquisition of Cryo Electron Microscopy images. She has been involved in a variety of training courses for Cryo EM, including an EMBO course run at Birkbeck London.

Since receiving her PhD in Biophysics from the University of Chicago in 1987, she has worked in a variety of positions, both in industry and academia, moving from the Scripps Research Institute to the NYSBC last year. Since 2002 she has also served as the Director of the National Resource for Automated Molecular Microscopy (NRAMM), an NIH funded national biotechnology centre. The focus of NRAMM is the development of automated imaging techniques for solving three-dimensional structures of macromolecular complexes using cryo-transmission electron microscopy (Cryo-TEM.) The overall goal is to develop new methods to improve the entire process, from specimen preparation to the generation of the final three-dimensional map. In 2007 Professor Carragher helped start a new company and works as Chief Science Officer, for NanoImaging Services, Inc., to provide CryoEM and other microscopy services to the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.

We look forward to welcoming Professor Carragher to Manchester next summer.

Previous events

mmc2017 is the latest in an impressive list of events dating back to the 1960s starting with the Micro conference and exhibition series. This later became MicroScience which grew ever-bigger until 2010. The RMS hosted the European Microscopy Congress in 2012 which was the catalyst for the current Microscience Microscopy Congress series.
