ISBG is an independent mixed service unit (UMS 3518) that manages the research platforms of the IBS on the EPN Campus in Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes, France. The partners of the ISBG are CNRS, CEA, UGA & EMBL with administrative support from CNRS Alpes.

Along with Strasbourg IGBMC, we are an Instruct centre providing funded access to our instruments and platforms for Instruct users.

Generous funding for the purchase of instrumentation and its operation has been provided by ANR FRISBI Equipex and GRAL Labex projects.

User access to instrumentation on the EPN Campus is a long established tradition due to the ESRF synchrotron and ILL neutron source. The ISBG expands this access tradition to methods for sample production, biophysical characterisation and structural analysis by EM and NMR.

Most of the platforms of the ISBG obtained ISO 9001 quality management certification in July 2011 (renewed in July 2014 and 2017) an established label of quality and a requirement of the French IBiSA project that aims to structure and improve the national platforms.
