Join us for the Thermal Biology Institute Seminar on Monday, October 5th. Dr. Harald Engelhardt of the Max Planck Institute in Munich, Germany, is presenting, "Investigating the Function of the Archaeal Cell Wall by Electron Tomography" at 3:10pm in 108 Plant Bioscience Building.
Dr. Engelhardt is a Professor in the Department of Molecular Structural Biology at the Max Planck Institute. Originally trained as a microbiologist, he has focused much of his efforts on using cryo-EM to study bacterial and archaeal cell surfaces by cryo-electron tomography. His department has been at the forefront of the revolution in cryo-EM, especially cryo-electron tomography, where they are currently able to image whole cells at ~2 nm resolution, allowing resolution of the locations of supermolecluar particles (ribsomes, pyruvate dehydrognease, rubisco, etc.) within intact cells.
