Carl-Ivar Brändén

The CIBB building was named after Carl-Ivar Brändén (1934-2004), who was a visionary in structural biology. After developing structural biology in Uppsala, Sweden, he joined the ESRF as Director of Research between 1992 and 1997. During this period he played a pivotal role in stimulating structural biology research activities in Grenoble.

The CIBB

is centrally located on the European Photon and Neutron Science Campus (EPN campus) at the confluence of the ESRF synchrotron, the ILL neutron reactor, the EMBL-Grenoble outstation and the Institut de Biologie Structurale. It is easily recognised by its spiral fire escape stairs and its triangle shape. The CIBB comprises 3 600 m² laboratory and office space, and currently houses around 80 people affiliated to the four PSB Partners, as well as several of the PSB technical platforms.
