Vítejte v CNSB

The Center for Nanobiology and Structural Biology, (CNSB) in Nové Hrady is a research unit of the Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences and carries out research in the field of structural and systems biology on a molecular, cell, tissue, and organism level. Hence it provides knowledge on the molecular structure of structural system elements, their principal metabolic and control pathways, identifies links between these elements and thus describes the structure of biological systems.


The laboratories and educational center in Nové Hrady were established in 2002. Methods were successfully implemented from bioinformatics, molecular biology, microscopy, molecular modeling and structure determination, mainly X-ray diffraction. The Campus in Nove Hrady was, from the very beginning, meant to serve not only as a research but also as a scientific training facility, and organizes a reasonable large number of courses, workshops, conferences and symposia.

Despite the short time of their existence, CNSB research groups already achieved excellent scientific results published in highly visible journals such as Nature, Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, Nature Methods, Nature Chemical Biology, Science Signaling, PLOS Computational Biology, etc. Thanks to that, scientists from Nove Hrady are regularly invited to speak at international conferences and symposia, get invitations to contribute review papers, book chapters and invited papers. CNSB is regularly visited by foreign scientists and participants of international internship programs.

The Center for Nanobiology and Structural Biology, (CNSB) was established 1.1.2011 and is a research unit of the Institute of Microbiology of the Academy of Sciences.
