UP CIISB Kick-Off Meeting will gather the CIISB Core Facility Heads, Executive Committee members, and administration staff of CEITEC and BIOCEV to discuss the starting OP VVV investment project UP CIISB. Within this project,  CIISB will receive funding to reinvest into the existing equipment and to purchase new instrumentation in the amount of 560 mil. CZK. Among others, new scanning transmission cryo-electron microscope with a detector for electron diffractions studies on microcrystals, fluorescence cryo-electron microscope, and new direct detectors for the existing instruments Titan Krios and Talos Arctica will be purchased. The Josef Dadok National NMR Center will benefit with upgrades of the instrument electronics and purchase of new probeheads for the high-field NMR spectrometers 500-950 MHz. Substantial acquisition of upgrades and new devices will keep up also Core Facilities for X-ray diffraction and Bio-SAXS, Crystallization of Proteins and Nucleic Acids, Biophysical Techniques, Nanobiotechnology, Proteomics and Structural Mass Spectrometry. This funding will allow CIISB to stay competitive on the European scale and will reinforce its position within the European Infrastructure consortium Instruct-ERIC as one of the leading Instruct Centers providing transnational access to its flagship technologies. The meeting will take place at CEITEC Masaryk University.
