Training the Next Generation of Structural Biologists




All access providing partners also offer hands-on training when users visit their facility. Training does not only involve the collection of experimental data, but our staff is also willing to help with data processing and analyses, and collaborations can often be discussed.

Due to the Corona-pandemic, physical visits of users to facilities has been severely disrupted. To partially cover for this, we arranged for a webinar series discussing the technologies that are offered by our facilities and more. Most of these webinars were recorded and can be found here.

In addition, we prepare with the Journal of Visualized Experiments for a special iNEXT-Discovery Methods edition to highlight several of our standard and specialist technologies.


Several practical workshops were originally planned to be organized by our partners that want to share their expertise in state-of-the-art technological developments in X-ray technology, NMR spectroscopy, Electron Microscopy and Biophysics. Most of these have been postponed and will take place later in the project, others can be converted into online events. At this time, we are not sure if the 2021 practical workshops can take place.

Our practical workshops are listed below, we will announce and include links to the information/registration sites when they are being prepared!
