EUROSTRUCT

 

Objectives

The key objective of EUROSTRUCT seeks to unravel SBCG's potential by creating a centre of excellence in structural biology with emphasis on structure-based drug design and discovery. Our complete set of objectives is as follows:

  • To set up a state-of the-art X-ray facility in IOPC/NHRF and develop our computational infrastructure to meet our increasing needs

  • To build a critical mass of sustainable research capacity with the aid of experienced personnel

  • To encourage and support the initiation of new focused research efforts employing new macromolecular targets

  • To extend our network of collaborations either with scientists within IOPC/NHRF and other national/international academic or research institutions in the frame of joint projects.

  • To enhance the cooperation with research groups of international reputation in the field through secondments and invitations

  • To follow integrated approaches coupling the equipment available in IOPC/NHRF (e.g. robotic crystallisation facility, 600MHz NMR) with the new X-ray and computational facilities.
