Instruct is a pan-European Research Infrastructure providing expertise and access to high quality instruments for structural cell biology researchers. Biocenter Finland Structural biology network operates as a joint Instruct National Affiliate Centre, offering a wide variety of structural biology infrastructure and expertise to both academic and industrial researchers within Finland and Europe.

Instruct is one of the successful operators at the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) for integrated structural biology infrastructure for Europe, where major distributed research infrastructures, supported by member states, offer European wide access to scientifically evaluated and accepted Instruct Centres across Europe. Find out more about the origins of Instruct here.

Instruct provides peer-reviewed access to all of the core structural biology technologies for excellent scientific projects, developing the next generation of instrumentation in partnership with industry, and providing training for structural biologists in cutting edge techniques. Instruct accomplishes this through two distinct framework categories.

Instruct Centres

The University of Helsinki hosts one Instruct Centre, ICVIR, with a core Instruct platform of virus production and purification. Through such Centres, Instruct provides access to cutting-edge technology and scientific expertise, offering all the core technologies needed to further structural biology research. Each of the Centres has contributed a range of instruments to the catalogue of platforms offered through the Instruct Hub.
