IUPAB Supports Physics of Life

IUPAB awarded bursaries to international students attending the Physics of Life meeting (27th – 30th March 2023) in Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK. Over 450 people from around 16 different countries participated, with a range of contemporary biophysics forming a varied programme. The meeting is expected to continue beyond 2023 as a biennial event.

An awardee, Ubeiden Cifuentes Somboni from the University of Cordoba in Argentina, is shown by his poster (left) explaining his work on integrin peptide-membrane interactions to Rhini Ghosh from Cambridge, UK. Lively poster sessions were guaranteed with food, wine and also beer from the local brewery (Cold Bath Brewery) based across the road from the Convention Centre. IUPAB bursaries also allowed Pradyumna Harlapur from Bengaluru, India, and Muhammad Sajeer from Karnataka, India to present their posters. Also present was Libby Holmes (right), one of the IUPAB communications team, from Sheffield UK.

3rd MOSBRI Scientific Conference – 10-13th June 2024

Molecular-scale biophysics focuses on the architecture, dynamics and interactions of the molecules of life: proteins, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides, lipids, by measuring their physical properties. It is fundamental to our understanding of how living organisms function, and for our ability to manipulate the function of these molecules, notably for therapeutic purposes. MOSBRI aims to address the urgent need for […]

4th Meeting of Portuguese Young Biophysicists – 9-10 May 2024

It is a great pleasure to introduce the Portuguese Young Biophysicists (PYBphy) group! The PYBphy is an affiliated group of the Portuguese Biophysics Society, with the intent of representing  the young researchers (undergraduate, graduated, PhD students, and also early post-docs) working in Biophysics. Our main goal is to dynamize and unite the biophysical community, by organizing events such […]
