Call for proposals utilising Instruct-funded structural biology techniques

Information on molecular structure provides insight in many areas of research including functional pathways.

Are you new to structural biology research? This fast-developing technology field may offer new approaches to further your work.

Do you have local or national access to ALL the structural biology instrumentation you need for your research? You might qualify for free access to some of the best structural biology facilities in Europe.

Instruct has 16 Instruct Centres around Europe and in Israel offering access to a full range of advanced technologies for obtaining structural and dynamic information on systems in various dimensions, complexity and resolution. Instruct also ensures expert support at the facility for the best research outcome.

Access to the Instruct Centre technologies is FREE to scientists from Instruct member countries.

Academic students and scientists who are working in laboratories of any of the Instruct member countries (presently BE, CZ, ES, FR, DE, IL, IT, NL, PT, SE, UK) are eligible to apply for access.  Access is free and we pay your travel and consumables. Proposals should outline an integrated programme of research that requires one or more Instruct technologies to achieve the aims of the project, and which are not ordinarily available in your own institution or through national facilities. All proposals are evaluated quickly on scientific merit.

Proposals for funded access to the full set of Instruct facilities are now invited.

Register on the Instruct website and submit your proposal online here. Further information is available on the Instruct website (Home>Resources>Proposal Submission).

The deadline for this round of proposal submission is 5pm CET, Friday 11th April 2014.
