An in-person Retreat on July 22nd, 2022 on 'Women Leading CryoEm in NYC '. 

Organizers: Pilar Cossio and Sonya Hanson

The goal of this mini retreat is to bring together women leaders in cryo-EM in NYC and their groups to discuss ongoing work and where they see the field headed. The groups attending include established leaders in the field as well as junior rising stars, and topics covered range from computational methods development to new insights on major biological questions. Discussion sessions will also provide a venue for conversations about how we can open the field to women and minorities and more.

There will be several speakers throughout the day, as well small discussion groups to discuss topics presented. If there is a question that you would like to add for discussion please feel free to add it to the google sheet linked here
