TEAM-TECH Core Facility grant in our laboratory

Dec 20, 2017

Prof Krzysztof Woźniak, the head of our Crystallochemistry Laboratory and LBSBio, was awarded one of the prestigious TEAM-TECH Core Facility grants in the latest call from the Foundation for Polish Science. This funding programme supports research teams headed by leading scientists carrying out R&D projects related to designing and developing research services with the use of advanced research equipment.

The project "Core facility for crystallographic and biophysical research to support the development of medicinal products" will last 36 months with a budget of approximately PLN 3,500,000. As a result, the new Core Facility for Crystallography and Biophysics (CFCB) will offer services and collaborations in small-molecule and protein crystallography and sample characterization. Our lab manager, Dr Jan Kutner, will serve as the deputy manager of the CFCB. Young scientists working in the project will have the benefit of mentoring and exchange visits with the project partners, Wladek Minor (University of Virginia) and Ben Luisi (University of Cambridge).

The project will run from February 2018 to January 2021 in the first instance, and the recruitment procedure will open soon for new positions at CFCB: 2 PhD and 5 undergraduate students, 2 technicians and 2 postdocs, with each team member working either for the small-molecule or protein research branch at CFCB. In particular, we accept applications for 1 technician and 1 PhD student positions to work in the structural biology pipeline within the CFCB on joint projects in close collaboration with our group.
