As part of an ongoing collaboration, Flupharm coordinator EMBL Grenoble helped the European Synchrotron Research Facility design an interactive wall explaining structural biology for their new visitor centre.

The wall features large panels, films and exhibits to explain how researchers uncover the shape of proteins to a wide public. It uses the Flupharm project as an example of how fundamental research informs the design of future drugs. The visitor centre, inaugurated in October 2013 will welcome over 3000 visitors a year from all over the world, and is designed to appeal to varied publics, from school children, to pensioners associations, and scientists.
