To be inspirational and bring together all structural biologists and their collaborators in NTU and elsewhere to address important biological and medical questions.
- To create a vibrant and multidisciplinary research community to foster world-class research and to nurture research collaborations. Research at NISB will integrate chemical, physical and biological sciences to enable us to further understand protein function and their role in human diseases.
- To create a culture of innovation and to provide a nurturing environment for the mentoring of young scientists. There should be no barrier between different techniques in structural biology and researchers will be encouraged to exploit all available resources to answer important biological questions.
- To consolidate and establish world class facilities as well as the development of joint technology platforms/infrastructures to serve as the foundation for cutting edge research.
