AFM Title: Atomic Force Microscopy: Enabling Characterization of Biological Structures and Forces at the Nanoscale 
Presenter: Andrea Slade, PhD, Veeco Instruments
Synopsis: This webinar will focus on the application of atomic force microscopy (AFM) for nanoscale characterization of biological structures. AFM facilitates high-resolution, 3-D imaging and highly sensitive measurements of interaction forces of biomolecules and biomolecular complexes under near-physiological conditions. As a surface characterization technique, AFM can provide researchers with insights into not only how biomolecules interact with each other but also how their interactions with surfaces, such as a biomaterial, can affect structure and behavior both in situ and without sample modification.
