The project “Core facility for crystallographic and biophysical research to support the development of medicinal products” is funded by the TEAM-TECH Core Facility programme from the Foundation for Polish Science. The project will establish a Core Facility for Crystallography and Biophysics (CFCB, UW) at the Biological and Chemical Research Centre, University of Warsaw under the supervision of Prof. dr hab. Krzysztof Woźniak ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

The mission of the new Facility will be analysis of proteins and small chemical compounds leading to crystallization trials for academic and commercial users. The project will enable the study of challenging biochemical and pharmaceutical problems, with emphasis on drug development and collaborations with the local research groups. Work at CFCB will be carried out in an interdisciplinary way, including both wet chemistry and biology techniques, as well as theoretical approaches including structure modelling, bioinformatics and computational methods. Biology (“BIO”) and chemistry (“CHEM”) team members will work in synergy complementing their knowledge, skills and experience. Apart from services and collaborations, Postdoctoral, PhD and M.Sc. researchers are expected to carry out their own research projects in either small-molecule or protein crystallography.

Young scientists working in the project will have the benefit of mentoring and exchange visits with the project partners, Wladek Minor (University of Virginia, USA) and Ben Luisi, (University of Cambridge, UK). Work at CFCB will consist in collaborations with biotech/pharmaceutical companies, such as WPD Pharmaceuticals or Pharmaceutical Institute.
