Three dimensional structure of an integrin

Integrins: Explained

More than 600 million years ago, out of the depths of the metazoa, a protein family emerged — one that would persist through evolution and come to shape life today.…

New federation aims to transform biology with protein tools spanning proteome by 2035

An ambitious protein moonshot is gaining momentum to develop and widely share tools that will land us understanding of the complete human proteome. In 2003, biology was all about the…

From Rob Meijers, interim executive director: In 2021, IPI explored ‘new frontiers’ in antigen and antibody discovery

As the world struggled to live in and through a seeming “forever pandemic,” 2021 was a year that demanded global resilience. The potency of delta followed by fast spread of…

Research, clinical care and community: Eliza Gavin balances three medical strategies as a prospective physician-scientist

Eliza Gavin was always the kid who wondered why. As a middle schooler, she’d look at a piece of crystallized rock candy, hypothesize how it formed and then learn how…

Part of a mammalian cerebellum

At a workshop where ‘structure meets function,’ a team of scientists polished a breakthrough

Most scientists attend conferences armed with posters and presentations. But in addition to those, protein chemist Jonathan Elegheert came to the 2018 Molecular Neurobiology Workshop with a protein and a pitch.…

Tracks of expressing neurons shown aligning linearly.

Elena Seiradake pushes the limits of molecular neurobiology through cross-disciplinary collaboration

What happens when a neurobiologist, a structural biologist and a biophysicist walk into a bar? Well, if the conditions are right, they’ll sit down, have a drink and forge connections…

Laser beams on a microscope

Neurobiology has focused on the insides of cells. Now, it’s time to study the gaps between them

To neuroscientist Valentin Nägerl, the brain is a biological Rubin’s vase, defined both by the contours that comprise it and those that constrain it. Between the structures of well-studied brain…
