Oklahoma COBRE in Structural Biology (OCSB)

Welcome to the website of the Oklahoma Center of Biomedical Research Excellence in Structural Biology (OCSB). This NIH-funded center supports research groups on the OU-Norman and OUHSC campuses that utilize a structural approach to study important biological macromolecules, in particular, proteins or nucleic acids that are promising targets for rational drug design.

Structural biology lies at the intersection of many different areas of biological sciences and thus has the potential of impacting numerous biomedically important fields. The OCSB was established in 2012 with an NIH COBRE Phase I award (1P20GM103640-01) and a Phase II renewal grant (2P20GM103640-06) was awarded 2017. These grants have provided significant resources for investigators at OU, OUHSC and others throughout the State for structure-based biomedical studies.
