STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY UNIT

The Structural Biology Unit is one of the leading research poles in the field of macromolecular X-ray crystallography in Spain. The SBU aims to understand the cell machinery and physiological processes from a structural and functional perspective using molecular and structural biology techniques as X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy.

The SBU is part of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB), a strategic research center from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and is located at Barcelona Science Park, which provides an excellent scientific and technological framework.
