In recent years, cryo-EM technology has driven structural biology development rapidly and accelerated new drug discovery. As the first company in Asia with a commercial structural analysis platform for 300kV top-mounted cryo-EM, Shuimu BioSciences Ltd. will host a series of international conferences in August once a year in the future. To bring the power of cryo-EM to new therapeutics developers, Shuimu BioSciences Ltd., is proud to announce that the 1st Global Innovation Institute of Cryo-EM for Drug Discovery (GCDD) Summit will be held on 8/15/2020 online. Shuimu BioSciences Ltd., cooperates with Thermo Fisher Scientific, inviting professionals from leading academic and research institutions, upstream and downstream enterprises, industrial parks, and investment institutions. Our guest speakers will share the latest achievements, discuss the dilemma faced by the industry and future development trends, and jointly promote the application and development of cryo-EM technology.
