Instruct Training program
We are pleased to announce that the Call for proposals for Instruct Centre Training Courses (to be held in 2019) is now open.
Instruct training courses that have been approved by the Training Committee and are supported by central Instruct funding should be implemented according to agreed standards set by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), Education and Training body funded by the European Union. Instruct is a partner in the IMI project EMTRAIN, and as such has agreed to work within their quality criteria for training courses.
This call is for events planned, organised and implemented by Instruct Centres. Courses co-organized with industrial partners are encouraged. A list of the approved courses for 2018 is available here.
Submissions will only be received by the online system
Deadline for proposal submission is 5pm CET, Friday 30th November 2018. Applicants must register on the Instruct website where the proposal submission forms and further information is available or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
