About the Institute of Structural Molecular Biology
ISMB seminars and events are organised throughout the year.

ISMB Friday Wrap
The ISMB Friday Wrap takes place on the last Friday of each month throughout the academic year. Meetings provide a forum around which to relax, for us to get to know each other better and to increase communication among postdocs and students. Meetings begin with refreshments at 15.45, followed by two 30 minute talks from 16.00.

ISMB seminars
ISMB seminars provide the opportunity to hear world class researchers giving seminars at the ISMB. The seminars take place at lunch time and members of the ISMB are invited to meet with visiting seminar speakers. Students are able to meet with the speaker at a free sandwich lunch.

ISMB Retreat
The aim of the ISMB retreat is to explore our links to biology, to build connections between ISMB members and to encourage collaboration.
