Dr. Reiner Bleher awarded for Applied Learning Project (ALP) presentation

Dr. Reiner Bleher hosted the 2016 CryoSEM workshop in hopes that focusing on one BioCryo method would help him reach a niche audience. From what he learned in a Kellogg Executive Education course, he anticipated the event would attract more audience members if he focused on one rather than a broad array of techniques. The workshop reached near maximum capacity at about 60 people.
