The proposed project aims to exploit the nucleating and phasing properties of a family of lanthanide complexes, the crystallophores, to facilitate Structure-Based Drug Design approaches. It is part of a collaboration, funded by the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, involving the ENS-Lyon chemistry laboratory, the EMBL-Grenoble high-throughput crystallization platform, and the companies Edelris and Polyvalan.

Work Context

The project will be carried out within the ELMA group of the Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS) in Grenoble, under the direction of E. Girard. IBS is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 5075) created by the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA). The role of IBS is to develop fundamental and applied research in integrated structural biology. IBS offers access to a panel of biophysical characterization platforms and is a founding member of the Partnership for Structural Biology with prestigious pan-European institutes: the European X-ray synchrotron source, the European Neutron Scattering Centre, the EMBL Grenoble station, all located nearby and offering a strong international environment.
