The facilities at NISB allows a complete workflow starting from protein purification and ending in structure determination

What we do

Our goal at NISB is to integrate structural biology research across NTU to address fundamental questions in biology and human diseases. We also play strategic role in the NTU Life / Biomedical Research Centre, which includes both LKC and SBS, as well as SCELSE, SPMS, and MSE

Connect with one of our principal investigators to collaborate

Research Focus

We have built on existing strengths and facilities to create a state-of-the-art technology platform encompassing all structural methods. Our work focuses on, but is not limited to, the following research projects:


Chromosomal Biology & Health

Synthetic Biology


Infectious Diseases

Metabolic & Genetic Diseases

Drug Discovery & Design

Our scientific platforms

NISB supports the NTU research community in structural biology research with a range of scientific platforms available for biophysical characterisation and structure elucidation of biological samples. Our professional services include assistance from initial project discussion and planning, through to application of characterization and analytical techniques and assistance with data interpretation. We provide training and assistance to new users as well as workshops on instruments, conducted by application specialists. 


17th July, 2023

Dr. Xu Hongyi from Stockholm University will be conducting a workshop to demonstrate Micro-crystal electron diffraction (MicroED) techniques. The workshop will consist of a seminar by Dr. Xu and a practical session where tips on data collection and data processing will be shared.

The workshop will be held on the 17th July, at NTU. As seats are limited, only selected participants will be notified.

26 Apr - 27 Apr, 2023

Thermofisher Scientific will be holding a workshop to demonstrate the capabilities of the newly installed Falcon 4i-SelectrisX in both Single Particle Analysis and Cryo-Tomography. As seats are limited, only selected participants will be notified.

Registration for the symposium has been closed. Thank you for your interest!

The 1st Singapore Structural Biology (SSB) Symposium is a platform to showcase research in the field of structural biology. The symposium will feature local structural biology leading speakers and prestigious young researchers.
