The Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference (IBSBC) showcases the latest, cutting-edge in integrative structural biology from leading scientists across the world.
The 5th Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Conference will be held at Utrecht in the Netherlands, from 18 - 20 May 2022. The theme of the 2022 conference is:
Changes in Structural Biology: Challenges in Studying Dynamics
The conference will explore new developments in structural biology, including the emerging methods and technologies that are helping scientists to decipher complex biomolecular dynamics.

The deadline for fellowship applications is 1 March 2022.
Ivano Bertini Award
The Ivano Bertini Award recognises a significant achievement in frontier research that utilises an integrative structural biology approach. The Award commemorates Ivano Bertini, who developed powerful new methods in NMR and built up a world class Centre for Magnetic Resonance (CERM) in Florence. CERM was in the first group of major Centres in structural biology to form the core structure of Instruct-ERIC.
The Award of €15,000 is endowed by Bruker BioSpin which, together with Ivano, developed instrumentation to broaden the application of NMR and increase measurement sensitivity.
Applications for the Ivano Bertini Award are open.
Muntgebouw Utrecht is situated 1km from the from the Utrecht Central Station.
