The Center for Structural Biology combines expertise with education and state-of-the-art instrumentation to support new, as well as, experienced scientists using biophysical methods in their research.

Structural biology is one of the pillars of basic biomedical research; it is indispensable for deciphering and controlling the molecular details of life processes and for understanding the differences between natural and diseased states.

Six cores: one mission.

Complement your research. Define molecular mechanisms that underpin complex biological systems.

Expand into new science. Innovate with cutting-edge instrumentation, high-quality reagents and on-site experts.

Catalyze collaborations. Engage like-minded scientists; open to all. Any level of experience; academic and commercial.
