Many projects are assigned to multiple research areas, which include:

Science-driven development of methodologies and instrumentation. Technical platforms are the cornerstone of the PSB and represent a significant collective investment. They are jointly operated and used by the partners.

PSB actively encourages academic visitors to make use of the state-of-the-art infrastructures, particularly for training purposes.



EMBL institutional partnerships are close cooperative affiliations between EMBL and external institutions of comparable standard, vision and international orientation.
