Young Scientist Travel Awards for 19th IBC

Last modified: September 26, 2017

Early Career Travel Grants are to assist young biophysicists, especially from developing countries, and applications will open from Monday, January 09, 2017.

These IUPAB awards are intended to supplement, rather than to fully pay travel expenses.

Maximum award is $1000 Euros and minimum is $250 Euros.  The awards are not intended to cover the cost of registration to the Congress.

Application Form is available in pdf on the IUPAB website  under “Forms” in “ABOUT US”.  This will give you all the information necessary to complete an application.

Closing date for applications is Friday, March 24, 2017.

After that date, a lengthy evaluation process by the IUPAB Executive takes place,  and all applicants will then be advised of the outcome of their applications.

Applicants must present a poster or platform contribution to the Congress, and it is required  that  supervisors approve of their attendance.

The funds will be paid in cash in Euros at the actual congress, and it is a condition that recipients attend the whole congress.  They must register on Day 1 at the YSTA booth, and the location will be posted near the Registration area.

Passport or similar photoID must be provided, together with a photocopy to be left with us for attachment to an official receipt form.

Payments will be made on the final morning of the congress, and a receipt must be signed by each recipient.

This is a requirement of our Auditors, and payments cannot be made without compliance with this condition.

‘Biomolecules and Nanostructures’ conference May 10-14, 2017 in Poland

Last modified: July 12, 2017

This is the 6th interdisciplinary conference as above, to be held in Podlesice in the Polish Jura, in the very picturesque Krakow-Czestochowa Upland, part of the Jurassic System of south-central Poland and surrounded by dramatic vistas and  a chain of majestic medieval castles.

Key topics covering current subjects at the crossroads of molecular biology, physics and chemistry, include:
protein folding, aggregation and disorder;  single-molecule manipulation;  biomolecular complexes;  biomembranes;  nucleic acids;  polysaccharides;  phenomena at bio-nano interfaces; and other issues related to molecular biophysics and biochemistry, both experimental and theoretical.

Invited speakers are listed at http://www.nanofun.edu.pl/bionano6/invited-speakers.html.  Also, a few short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts.  The book of abstracts will be issued within the Europhysics Conference Abstracts series, published by the European Physical Society. Two best-presentation awards of 350 euro each will be funded to young participants by Europhysics Letters.

The deadline for registration, abstract submission, and payment for lodging and the conference fee is March 1, 2017. The conference fee includes all local expenses: admission to the conference, conference materials, coffee breaks, meals and accommodation.  We shall provide transportation to Podlesice from Krakow Airport, Katowice Airport, and
from Zawiercie railway station on May 10 and back on May 14.

The conference is organized by the Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, the Committee of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences and the Pro Physica Foundation, under the auspices of the Division of Physics in Life Science of the European Physical Society.

The conference poster is available at: http://www.nanofun.edu.pl/bionano6/conference-poster.html.

Report on Advanced School on Receptors & Signalling, May 23-27, 2016 on Spetses Island, Greece

Last modified: August 25, 2016

Spetses PhotoThis School was held jointly with IUBMB/IUPAB/IUPS.  The Spetses Summer Schools have been held annually since 1966, and over the years have attracted more than fifteen Nobel Laureates and more than five hundred different lecturers, to teach more than five thousand young pre- and post-doctoral researchers.
The program included lectures, posters and various traiing sessions to enable young scientists to interact with some of the best international experts in their fields.  Additionally, there were “tutorials” where young scientists could take advantage of the advice of senior colleagues, as well as a “round table discussion”.   As lecturers and young participants were accommodated together, discussions were possible during leisure times, as well as programmed social events such as the farewell dinner held on May 26.
Links to the Programme and list of Lecturers are below.

Report on Summer School on “Imaging neuroinflammation” at Kotor, Montenegro in June, 2016

Last modified: August 23, 2016

The Regional Biophysical School “Academician Radoslav K. Andjus” (NERKA) was established in honor of Professor R.K. Andjus (1926-2003), an internationally recognized scientist from the University of Belgrade, a member and founder of Montenegrin and Serbian academies of sciences and arts. This was the sixth school, organized traditionally by the Biophysical Society of Serbia, co-organized by the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, Institute for Marine Biology in Kotor also as the venue, and with the fellowships sponsored by the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB).

The topic of the School was to introduce modern methods of biophysical imaging and image analysis in studies of inflammatory phenomena and markers of neurodegenerative diseases. Discussion was stimulated among participants on the translational value of these techniques and the clinical relevance of presented experimental markers. A discussion panel was also organized on the crisis in modern science and the relevance of interdisciplinarity and team work. The techniques covered were MRI, MRS, PET, EPRI, and advanced microscopy (non-linear microscopy- dual photon fluorescence, Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy & microscopy, PALM, STED, CARS, digital holographic microscopy). A multidisciplinary faculty (from 8 countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Italy, Serbia, Sweden, UK, and USA) was chosen ranging from fields of physics (applications of laser technology and advanced microscopy), physical chemistry (magnetic resonance techniques and applications), biology (experimental models of neurodegenerative diseases), and medicine (clinical studies and markers of neuroinflammation).

NERKA6-2016--2

The students were from 8 countries: Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovakia. Altogether 33 students were registered. 15 students were awarded a fellowship on competitive basis.
