Molecular-scale biophysics is a dynamic interdisciplinary field that aims to study biological macromolecules and assemblies as a whole, at an intermediate level between atomic-resolution structural descriptions and cellular-level observations (“Between Atom and Cell”), with significant applications in biomedicine and drug discovery.

ARBRE aims to foster a large-scale pan-European interdisciplinary synergistic clustering, allowing to ally and synergize the power of spectroscopic, hydrodynamic, real-time microfluidic, thermodynamic and single-molecule approaches.

It is the optimal environment for the development of innovative integrative biophysical approaches, at the level of data acquisition, analysis and modelling, as well as for the design of unprecedented and ambitious combinations of methodologies, to decipher more efficiently crucial biological phenomena and to overcome significant biomedical challenges.

In close collaboration with the Molecular-Scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure (MOSBRI), ARBRE will broadly disseminate knowledge, notably through the organization of Conferences, Workshops, Training Schools and mentoring/human mobility schemes.

ARBRE will provide a platform for scientists to establish early contacts with instrument developers (at the level of concept or prototype), allowing to set-up win-win partnerships that will allow to define and develop together future instrumentation that genuinely meets the needs of the broad biomedical and life sciences communities.
