The workshop ‘Integrative methods in Structural Biology to enhance high impact research in health and disease’ was organised by the University of Oxford and the Institute Pasteur Montevideo in collaboration with Instruct. The event was funded by the British Embassy in Uruguay within the “Researcher Links” programme which provides opportunities for early career researchers to interact, to learn from each other and to explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.
The workshop provided a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking between structural biologists. The workshop will have a lasting effect in implementing collaborations between Europe and South America with implications to the access of state of the art research infrastructure not only for scientists from Uruguay but from the region. Future visits and events are already being planned for the near future as well as long term collaboration framed in a signed Memorandum of Understanding. Read more about this initiative here
