My story

[p]A crack team of "elite athletes" from the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory at the University of Leeds will cycling from one end of the country to the other, visiting every Titan Krios and Grand ARM microscope in the UK. The core team will be Becky, Molly, Neil & Ollie, but David, Josh, Laura, Rodrigo and Sophie will be doing big chunks, and we will be cycling bits with friends from eBIC, CCPEM, London and Cambridge. We will sweat a lot, suffer a fair bit, take cheesy photos with electron microscopes, and end up at the national cryo-EM meeting: The CCPEM Spring Symposium. Look forward to seeing there! [/p][p]We'll be shedding all of this sweat and tears (hopefully no blood) to raise money for International Justice Mission, a wonderful charity working to end modern slavery, and protect people from violence in the developing world. They do fantastic, phenomenal work using a model that's proven to work: rescuing people from slavery and prosecuting those who exploit them, across the globe.[/p]
