Preparation and biophysical/MS characterization of multiprotein complexes for cryo-EM analysis
The rise in popularity of structural approaches, in particular the advent of the cryo-EM “resolution revolution” has resulted in a dire need for improved strategies for sample production and characterization to prevent congestion in the workflow. This advanced EMBO course will train participants (mainly PhD students and postdocs) with the state-of-the-art approaches for the preparation of large macromolecular assemblies in view of structural studies.
The three national infrastructures ProFi, FranceBioImaging and FRISBI along with the GIS IBiSA
are pleased to announce a second call for a funded access to IBiSA-labelled facilities. Our aim
is to promote IBiSA facilities networking through transdisciplinary research projects.
Applications should request access to at least two different IBiSA facilities from two
disciplines (structural biology, Biological imaging and proteomics, see below a non-exhaustive
list). The call is open to any academic laboratory.
This is a workshop distributed over several participating centres of the iNEXT-Discovery infrastructure https://inext-discovery.eu.
Practicals will be run in parallel sessions on each site and shared morning lectures on the background and technical aspects will be followed jointly by all the participants.
It comprises sample vitrification, focused ion beam milling to obtain lamella and cryo-ET data acquisition & evaluation.
If you are interested to join please register here: https://inextfibet.sciencesconf.org/
This call aims to encourage teams to obtain initial access to the services offered by the Research Infrastructures to help their research project.
The objective is to demonstrate the significant impact of these services to improve the quality of their results (resolution, reproducibility, change of scale, etc.) or to help remove technological barriers. We also aim to make our teams aware of the cutting-edge technologies, methods and expertise offered by these national infrastructures.

The RéNaFoBIS network is organising its 10th national school from 1 to 9 June 2023 in Oléron. This school offers theoretical and practical training to the different approaches used in structural biology (diffraction and diffusion of X-rays, NMR, electron microscopy, sample preparations for structural studies, macromolecular interactions. It will focus on the integration of several of these experimental methods to answer the major questions of functional biology at the atomic scale.
FRISBI co-finances training in France that is open to national and European structural biology communities.
FRISBI will particularly consider training co-organised with a centre from an another infrastructure written in the “Feuille de route Nationale des Infrastructures” https://www.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/sites/default/files/2022-03/feuille-de-route-nationale-des-infrastructures-de-recherche---2021-v2--17318.pdf
Deadline for submission: 11 September 2022 for a course held between the 1st of January and 31st of December 2023.
The 8th FRISBI call for funded access to national structural biology platforms is now open.
Access to FRISBI infrastructure is possible for all scientists working in French laboratories. Scientists working at FRISBI centres cannot request funding for access to their local centre.
· Depending on project size 250-2000 € of support is available as a contribution towards the access costs of each project (consumables, reagents and travel for one person). The number of awards is limited. The user is expected to cover any additional expenses beyond the award price.
· Scientists may visit single or multiple FRISBI platforms for their experiments.
· The deadline for this round of proposal submission is 30 June 2022. Proposals should be submitted via the FRISBI online proposal submission system at http://frisbi.eu/submit-a-proposal/. Once selected, projects should be performed within 12 months.
FRISBI is listed as a National Research Infrastructure in Biology and Health in the new "Feuille de route Nationale des Infrastuctures de Recherche" on the MESRI site
Interdisciplinary access call to Structural biology, Biological imaging and Proteomics facilities
The three national infrastructures ProFi, FranceBioImaging and FRISBI along with the GIS IBiSA are pleased to announce a call for a funded access to IBiSA-labelled facilities. Our aim is to promote IBiSA facilities networking through transdisciplinary research projects.
Applications should request access to at least two different IBiSA facilities from two disciplines (structural biology, Biological imaging and proteomics). The call is open to any academic laboratory.
The amount of the financial support will be up to 5000 € per application to cover facility costs.
