The NTU Institute of Structural Biology (NISB) is a new initiative established in April 2014. The main aim of NISB is to integrate Structural Biology research across NTU to address important questions in biology and human diseases. It will also play a strategic role in the NTU Life/Biomedical Research Cluster that includes both LKC Medicine and SCELSE. NISB builds on the existing strengths and facilities at the School of Biological Sciences such as the newly established world-class electron microscopy EM laboratory, and the joint NTU-IMCB Centre located at Biopolis to create a state-of-the-art technology platform encompassing all structural methods. NISB will facilitate collaborations within NTU and between other Universities to ensure facilities and expertise are used to carry out high quality research.
