About CeBEM

This project establishes the creation of the Center for Structural Biology of MERCOSUR (CEBEM), integrating nine major centers of the region, from Brasil, Argentina and Uruguay, which already have a strong profile in Structural Biology and Protein Science. These nine centers seek to work in network forming CEBEM. The main objective is thus to integrate local capacities in the area of Structural Biology, qualitatively increasing the impact of isolated human resource training actions. CeBEM will foster the exchange of students, as well as the integration and optimization of the use of sophisticated and expensive equipment. A further aim is to promote and support emerging small groups in the region.

The main areas of action of these groups include: crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, calorimetry, surface plasmon resonance, spectroscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance, molecular modeling, structural bioinformatics, drug design and medicinal chemistry.
