Cryogenic Electron Microscopy: History, Present, and Future


Marin van Heel is one of the main developers of the single-particle cryogenic Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) methodologies in use worldwide today. He is the main developer of IMAGIC-4D software package, and was the recipient of the 1987 Ernst Ruska Award for electron microscopy and the 2017 Wiley Award in Biomedical Sciences, for “Pioneering Developments in Electron Microscopy”. Marin van Heel is a Senior Researcher at LNNano/CNPEM; Emeritus Professor of Cryo-EM Data Processing at Leiden University; and Emeritus Professor of Structural Biology at Imperial College London. Single-Particle Cryogenic Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) has gone through a “resolution revolution” making cryo-EM the method-of-choice to elucidate the structure of large biological complexes such as the ribosome, or viruses like the Zika virus. His latest research focus has been on information-theoretical issues and their consequences for the understanding of the SARS-Cov2 Spike protein and its glycosylation pattern.
