CSB Retreat Photo September 20, 2022
Attendees of the 1st Annual Center for Structural Biology Retreat, September 20, 2022. NCI Advanced Technology Research Facility, Frederick, Maryland.

The newly formed Center for Structural Biology (CSB) will serve as the focus for structural biology activities across the CCR.  The Center's foundation is built from the merger of the Structural Biophysics Laboratory and the Macromolecular Crystallography Laboratory. 

The Center will: 1) plan, develop and conduct research studies on the molecular structure and interactions of biological macromolecules and therapeutics pertinent to human health, with a particular emphasis on cancer and infection; 2) support training of personnel in advanced structural methods; 3) develop and apply new tools for molecular characterization using novel biophysical and biochemical techniques including cryo-electron microscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction and scattering methods; 4) lead methods development to enable full understanding of large, multi-component molecular machines; and 5) apply structural and chemical insights to develop mechanistic understanding to inform therapeutics strategies.
