Information for Life Scientists
The rapid pace of scientific discovery and the development of new structural biology technologies offer life scientists unparalleled freedom to engage in interdisciplinary research. We find ourselves in a game changing moment – where new research tools find application in a huge range of life science research areas. From neuroscience, cell biology, cancer studies, genetics, pharmacology, virology, microbiology, vaccine development, membrane studies, immunology to plant sciences, huge swathes of research have been deeply impacted by by tools such as cryo-Electron microscopy, NMR, x-ray diffraction and mass spectrometry. The largest proportion of Nobel prizes in life sciences in recent decades have been awarded to protein structure determinations, unlocking science’s deepest secrets.
Instruct-ULTRA allows researchers from all life science disciplines the chance to complement their studies by investigating protein structure, including hands-on expert training, and research visits, with full funding available.
