7. The Briegel Lab is part of the Centre for Microbial Cell Biology (CMCB). Who is NOT part of this centre?


8. The Briegel lab relies on ‘The Netherlands Centre for Electron Nanoscopy” (NeCEN) for data collection. IN what year did NeCEN open its doors? 


9. The Dutch cryo-EM community is very active in scientific outreach endeavours. For example, two of our resident cryo-EM scientists gave TEDx talks in the past few years- Who?
