MOSBRI Special Session at FEBS2024, 15:30-16:00, 1st July 2024, Milan.

MOSBRI: Molecular Biophysics to understand life and disease.
15:30 – 15:45 Patrick England, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France.
15:45 – 16:00 Francesca Cutruzzolà, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.

The pan-European MOlecular-Scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure MOSBRI (mosbri.eu) was launched in 2021 to provide free-of-charge trans-national access (TNA) to cutting-edge instrumentation and expertise in molecular biophysics through an integrated consortium including partners from 11 European countries, thus enabling excellent life science research. In this special session, we will highlight success stories selected from the more than 150 TNA projects accepted to date from applicants worldwide, and showcase some of the networking activities (international conferences, courses and training schools) and joint research activities that MOSBRI has spearheaded. Programme for the FEBS2024 conference.

Upcoming events


MOSBRI is a consortium of 2 companies and 13 academic centres of excellence from 11 countries gathers a wide complementary panel of cutting-edge instrumentation and expertise, leveraging barriers that currently hinder the optimal exploitation of molecular-scale biophysical approaches in the fields of biomedicine, biotechnology, biomaterials and beyond. MOSBRI provides European academic and industrial researchers with a one-stop shop Trans-National Access to the latest technological developments in advanced spectroscopies, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, real-time kinetics and single molecule approaches.

It will play a major role in standardization and policy-making in the field by:

  • carrying out Joint Research Activities to develop innovative methodologies
  • designing robust quality control guidelines and FAIR-compatible archiving formats and databases
  • engaging with instrumentation, pharma, biotech and CRO SMEs

Networking activities will multiply the impact of MOSBRI, by efficiently sharing and disseminating theoretical and practical knowledge through training events in Europe, contributing to:

  • the emergence of a highly qualified new generation of scientists
  • outreach to scientific communities currently unaware of the full potential of the integrated use of molecular-scale biophysics tools

MOSBRI is complementary to related infrastructures including INSTRUCT-ERIC and iNEXT-Discovery, and will help creating a strong cross-fertilizing ecosystem with leveraging effects for European science. It represents a unique opportunity for Europe to remain at the forefront in this competitive field, thereby contributing significantly to the acceleration of discoveries beneficial for OneHealth.
