Welcome to the Laboratory of Biological Electron Microscopy

We use high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy to study neurodegeneration and other protein systems. We also develop novel imaging technology in the areas of electron microscopy hardware and applications, sample preparation, data collection schemes, and data analysis software systems. The Stahlberg group is supported by the University of Lausanne, Faculty of Medicine and Biology, and by the EPFL, Faculty of Basic Sciences, Physics Institute. The LBEM is a research laboratory of both UNIL and EPFL.

Our most recent lab events

A group from our lab attended the ADPD Conference 2023 in Gothenburg. A lot of discussions, interesting talks (even though we cannot hear the word biomarker anymore...), and social events. It was a blast!

Group photo time!

Presenting our posters...

...and giving talks!

Unfortunately the park was closed during the conference

Students from the masters program in physics at EPFL came to visit our lab. From wetlab, grid preparation and even handling one of our microscope they had a full view of the many techniques and apparatus used in our lab. What a fun time!

Hands-on experience with an EM!

Investigating our wetlab

Lab excursion to the Rocher de Naye. At 2000m height on top of Montreux it offers a stunning view of the Lake Geneva. Plus, for the lazy ones, it is reachable by cable car.

Hiking up a mountain...

...having a well deserved Apéro...

...eating lunch together...

...and posing for some pictures!
