Improving vitrification of membrane proteins with VitroJet for structure-based drug design at leadXpro

We are very pleased to welcome cryo-EM Senior Scientist Marta Sawicka as our next guest speaker in this cryo-EM Community webinar, Tuesday February 27th, 2024. More detailed info is available through the registration link below.

Marta works at biotechnology company leadXpro in Switzerland, specializing in structure-based drug discovery for membrane proteins. Besides developing an internal clinical pipeline, the company also provides contract research organization work for a growing number of pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic partners. leadXpro’s research covers a broad range of membrane proteins, including GPCRs, ion channels, transporters, and enzymes. Membrane proteins are the most promising targets for drug discovery, yet also the most challenging. To unlock these targets, the company brings together specialized knowledge in protein science, pioneering technologies in structural biology, including cryo-EM, and expertise in ligand design and characterization.

Cryo-EM sample preparation has been a time-consuming and labor-intensive process with many variables that are challenging to optimize. Last year, leadXpro extended its cryo-EM facility, headed by Mathieu Botte, with the VitroJet sample preparation solution. Marta will now share their exciting research results in this webinar and her instrument experience including, among others, the screening of ice-thickness and how this accelerates the workflow for the pharmaceutical industry.

Live Q&A

The webinar will be hosted by René Henderikx, VitroJet Product Manager at CryoSol-World, and responsible for the roadmap of the sample preparation solutions for cryo-EM. He will also join the live Q&A with Marta following the presentation. We are looking forward to welcoming many of you and your questions to help you with your needs in cryo-EM sample preparation. Because we believe two achieve more together.

We are looking forward to welcoming many of you live in this exciting webinar from Marta presenting research results of leadXpro; the world’s leading company in delivery of gene to membrane protein structure facilitating the design of novel medicines.

You will receive an email instantly after registration, including a link to access the webinar. Enjoy the webinar!
