Advancing the case for collaboration and integration in structural science: an inside view from the leaders of the CCDC and PDB


This webinar welcomes two leaders in structural data to reflect on how biology and chemistry disciplines might collaborate and integrate for better research outcomes for all.

  • Dr Juergen Harter, CEO of the CCDC who curate the Cambridge Structural Database
  • Dr Stephen K. Burley, Director of the RCSB PDB, the US data centre for the global PDB archive

The global data resources curated and managed by these two organisations power ground breaking research around the world. What does the future look like for these institutions? How can we secure better research outcomes in an increasingly inter-disciplinary and "digital first" research environment?

About the CCDC

The Cambridge Structural Database or CSD is the world's largest repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing over one million structures from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world. It is curated by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).



About the RCSB PDB

The Protein Data Bank (PDB) was established in 1971 to archive atomic-level, experimentally-determined 3D structures of biomolecules. Managed today by the Worldwide PDB partnership, US PDB operations are the responsibility of the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics PDB (RCSB PDB). RCSB PDB serves millions of users worldwide with rich structural views of fundamental biology, biomedicine, and energy sciences.
