ISBUC – Integrative Structural Biology at the University of Copenhagen
Integrative Structural Biology at the University of Copenhagen (ISBUC) is a research cluster established to create optimal conditions for internal and external collaborations, sharing of technologies and facilities, and to respond to the changing conditions for structural biology.
There is a shift from laboratories that typically focus on applying single techniques, to those integrating data from multiple techniques to get a broader picture of systems under investigation. In addition, constant technological developments push for more investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure encouraging larger consortia to unite and make use of these infrastructure.
The cluster is made of up of all scientists involved in structural biology and related fields at the University of Copenhagen. The cluster spans 15 departments from the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. It provides a single point of contact, facilitating access and communication with the community, optimised internally by members and interested external partners.
The cluster is organized by a Steering Committee elected at the yearly General Assembly. The Steering Committee consists of:
- three members from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
- three members from the Faculty of Science
- Chairman and Vice Chairman from each faculty
- Chairman of the Junior ISBUC Steering Committee
- ISBUC Cluster Coordinator
