Cryo-EM is the newest subgroup to join the Biophysical Society. The new subgroup received approval at the recent Council meeting, bringing the total number of Society subgroups to 13. Over 100 regular Society members signed the petition in support of the subgroup, which was spearheaded by Ed Egelman of the University of Virginia, Da-Neng Wang of New York University, Bridget Carragher of the New York Structural Biology Center, Yifan Cheng of University of California, San Francisco, Irina Serysheva of the University of Texas Medical School, and David Stokes of New York University. 

On Saturday, February 27, 2016, the Cryo-EM Subgroup held its inaugural meeting from 7:00-9:00PM at the Biophysical Society 60th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, California. The following speakers were chosen from abstract submissions: Tamir Gonen (Janelia Farms, HHMI), Dganit Danino (Israel Inst. of Technology), Zhao Wang (Baylor College of Medicine), Doreen Matthies (NIH), Alexey Amunts (Stockholm University), Yuan Gao (University of California, San Francisco). Over 250 people attended the talks and, afterwards, elected officers and approved the bylaws governing operation of the subgroup.

In order to join the Cryo-EM Subgroup, you must be a member of the Society.
