From January 4-15, 2016 the Jawaharla Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research will host the School on Nano, structural and single molecule approaches to biology: understanding and handling life at higher resolution.  Practical sessions will provide the opportunity for hands-on experience in some of the subjects covered by the lectures.

VIII Graduate Course in Biophysics (POSLATAM) in Uruguay, November 23-25, 2015

Last modified: January 17, 2016

For the first time, Uruguay has been chosen by the Latin American Federation of Biophysical Societies (LAFeBS) to organize the above course.  It is supported by IUPAB, and will be held in the beautiful city of Salto which is on the Uruguay River, fifteen miles from the border with Argentina, and is well known for its famous hot springs and thermal water theme parks.
The theme of the course will be “Membrane lipids, transporters, channels, and all that crosstalk”.   Full details are available at

Immediately following POSLATAM on November 26-29 there will be a joint Scientific Meeting of the Argentinean Biophysical Society (SAB) and the Biophysics Branch ( of the Uruguayan Society of Biosciences.  The theme for this meeting is “Latin American Crosstalk in Biophysics”.   For full details please visit the conference  website at

13th Greta Pifat Mrzljak International School of Biophysics

Last modified: October 13, 2016

From September 2-11, 2016 this prestigious school will take place in Croatia, run by the Croatian Biophysics Society. This time, it will be island-hopping between University of Split and University of Zadar.

Students from other continents should also benefit from the high-quality lectures both on general biophysics and on the latest developments in the field. As most of the lecturers will be available throughout the School the students will also have many opportunities for a more direct interaction.
