This lecture series focuses on applied electron microscopy for the characterization of hydrated samples (hydrogels, colloids, hydrated polymers, polymer-peptide hybrids, scaffolds for cell culture evaluations) using cryo-preservation and characterization of materials in their pristine/life-like state. Several techniques that have been well established in life sciences research will be presented in the context of materials science.
