Information for Structural Biologists

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could have free access to a wide range of cutting edge structural biology techniques and machinery? 

Have you ever wanted to visit a leading structural biology lab for an internship, to learn a new technique?

Do you have a research and development (R&D) project where funding would enable you to press ahead with a bespoke technology you are working on?

Would you like free access to a pan-European research consortium where latest scientific news and techniques are shared, along with training events and job opportunities?
