30 years of Structural Biology: from LTPV to CENABIO
VI Annual Meeting of the INCT for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (INBEB)

In 2018, the National Institute of Science and Technology for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (INBEB) celebrates 10 years of existence. The date also marks the 30 year anniversary of the Gregorio Weber Laboratory of Protein Folding and Virus Assembly (LTPV), the 20 year anniversary of the Jiri Jonas National Center of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (CNRMN) and the 5 year anniversary of the National Center for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (CENABIO). Together, these research centers contributed to consolidate the area of ​​Structural Biology in Brazil and also to build a network of researchers and laboratories of high level, equipped with cutting-edge technologies.

To mark the occasion, INBEB organizes on November 12th the event "30 years of Structural Biology: from LTPV to CENABIO - VI Annual Meeting of the INCT for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (INBEB)". The one-day program includes presentations by a selection of important researchers from the field of Structural Biology in Brazil. The event will be held in the auditorium of Block N of the Health Sciences Center of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (CCS-UFRJ), from 9am to 7pm.

About INBEB

The National Institute of Science and Technology for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (INBEB) is a pioneering initiative that seeks to bring together all installed capacity in structural biology and bioimaging to support the study of the structures of biological systems, from the macromolecular level to the whole organism, using the most advanced and highest resolution techniques possible. INBEB is made up of 20 Associated Laboratories (LAs) composed of 115 researchers, more than 50 postdoctoral associates and hundreds of PhD students, masters and scientific initiation.

About LTPV

The Gregorio Weber Laboratory of Thermodynamics of Proteins and Viral Structures (LTPV) is located in the Institute of Medical Biochemistry Leopoldo de Meis (IBqM-UFRJ). It was founded in 1988 by Jerson Lima Silva, professor of IBqM-UFRJ, who is also its coordinator since the beginning. The laboratory is a reference worldwide in the study of structure and stability of biomolecules, using mainly spectroscopic techniques such as fluorescence and circular dichroism. LTPV is also a reference in the use of hydrostatic pressure in conformational studies of proteins and viral structures, seeking the production of vaccines.

About the CNRMN

The National Center of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance of Macromolecules Jiri Jonas (CNRMN) was founded in 1998, at the Health Sciences Center at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (CCS-UFRJ), under the responsibility of the then called Department of Medical Biochemistry, current Institute of Medical Biochemistry Leopoldo de Meis, as a project coordinated by Professor Jerson Lima Silva. Today, it is part of CENABIO and has six high performance spectrometers, which allow the study of 3D macromolecular structures. Throughout its 20 years, the CNRMN has been used by hundreds of researchers from Brazil, Latin America and the world. For being the first initiative to use NMR in the study of protein structure in Brazil, CNRMN has been responsible for the training of dozens of researchers and the emergence of several other centers in Latin America.

About CENABIO

The National Center for Structural Biology and Bioimaging (CENABIO) is a multi-user unit of UFRJ that offers several experimental approaches to obtain images of organs, cells and biomolecules. It was inaugurated officially in 2013. The center is formed by three units: the CNRMN, the nucleus for imaging small animals and the center of microscopy. Since December 2017, CENABIO also has the Advanced Biomolecule Platform (PAB), a laboratory for the development and production of biomolecules.
