Have you heard of CORBEL?

Briefly, CORBEL is an initiative of thirteen biological and medical research infrastructures, which together create a platform for harmonised user access to biological and medical technologies, biological samples and data services required by cutting-edge biomedical research.

Do you know that ChEMBL, through ELIXIR, participates to the project and provides its expertise in, among other things, identification of existing bioactivities for compounds of interest, profiling of chemotypes, target identification, data storage and distribution? But of course, CORBEL gives you access to different services working in many different biomedical areas. You want to screen the compounds you have identified and then use Electron Microscopy to observe their effect on a cell type of your interest, there are services for you! This is just an example of how CORBEL can contribute to boost your research projects(s), don’t forget we are  37 partners!  

As part of the WP4, Community Driven Cross-Infrastructure joint research – Bioscience, we were recently in Berlin to attend a Service Operator meeting and to meet the CORBEL users that requested our contribution to their project. That was a great opportunity to talk with them about their work and how ChEMBL could help them to achieve great things!

To keep it short, let’s just add that CORBEL has just launched a 2nd Open Call. To get an idea of what that might look like please have a look at the 1st Open Call selected projects. That might be the opportunity for you to submit your project and, if you request our help, for us to assist you in your work!
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654248
