Instruct-ERIC is a European Research Infrastructure in Structural Biology comprising twelve European member countries, and is a Landmark on the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap. Structural Biology has an important part to play in Virology research, where techniques such as Cryo-EM and NMR have elucidated recently key protein structures, unlocking the mechanisms of virulence. Instruct-ERIC provides Open Access to high end structural biology techniques across Europe. Our online catalogue gives more information about services offered and how to submit a proposal for a research visit https://instruct-eric/platform-catalogue, with funded access available to researchers from all member countries. Instruct-ERIC also offer a full set of workshops in emerging technologies, along with internships and R&D funding for technology development.

Dr Thomas Bowden will give a brief scientific report of how structural biology relates to virology, and Naomi Gray will explain how to access Instruct-ERIC services. For more information contact
