CIISB offers priority and free-of-charge access for COVID-19 research proposals
CIISB is committed to the use its resources in response to the emergency situation of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. CIISB ensures that available technologies support primarily researchers in their efforts to study the virus and projects aiming to the development of an effective vaccine or treatment.
In this context, we are offering priority access to groups that need to use CIISB structural biology services for projects directly related to COVID-19 virus particles. Priority access will ensure a faster review of research proposals relating to COVID-19. To request priority access to CIISB services for COVID-19 related research, please submit a research proposal with COVID-19 in the title of the proposal.
Successfully accepted proposals will be free of charge, and no financial contribution will be requested for the measurement/service.

What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
