Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona, Spanish Research Council (CSIC)

The Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB) belongs to the Spanish Research Council C.S.I.C and is physically located in the Barcelona Science Park in Barcelona city. Drs. Gomis-Rüth and Maria Solà hold permanent group-leader research position at Research Professor and Assistant Professor levels, respectively, and they participate as PIs of the Proteolysis Lab and the Structural MitoLab in the Department of Structural Biology of the IBMB. Taken together, the two research teams have published over 130 papers on structural analyses of proteins and DNA. The main themes of research include the analysis by X-ray crystallography of proteases and DNA-binding proteins, besides other proteins. The Proteolysis Lab and the Structural MitoLab have state-of- the-art computing equipment and participate in a joint High-throughput Crystallography Platform, which is equipped with crystallization robots for nanocrystallography and diffraction data collection. The groups have regular access to the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble (France) within a Block Allocation Group and to ALBA Synchrotron in Bellaterra (Spain).
