Limited Use for Collection of Initial Data (LUCID) Scheme

The University of Bristol is offering a limited allocation of complimentary cryoEM sessions to academic leaders within the GW4 region (Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, and Exeter). The objective of this program is to enable researchers who intend to integrate cryo-EM into their projects, but require initial data to showcase their feasibility for future cryo-EM grant submissions.
