Dutch Biophysics conference 2018

Dutch Biophysics 2018, on October 1st and 2nd in the Koningshof Veldhoven, was a great success. This conference is co-organized by NWO Domain Science (ENW), the Netherlands Society for Microscopy, the Dutch Society of Cell Biology and the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (BIOPM).

More participants then previous years participated in the conference and discussing their latest research, in plenary lectures and parallel sessions.

BIOPM sponsored two key prizes: the poster prize and the annual thesis prize.

The Thesis Prize for the best PhD thesis in Biophysics or Biomedical Engineering 2018 was awarded to Yusaku.Hontani for his thesis “Photoreaction dynamics of functional photoreceptor proteins”. He defended his thesis successfully at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam on 4 July 2018.

Report Dutch Biophysics 2017

Dutch Biophysics 2017, on October 2nd and 3rd in de Koningshof Veldhoven, was again a great success. At this conference, co-organized by FOM, ALW, the Netherlands Society for Microscopy and the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (BIOPM), it was a well-attended conference with biophysicists, biologists and biomedical engineers gathered and discussing their latest research, in plenary lectures and parallel sessions.

BIOPM sponsored two key prizes: the poster prize and the annual thesis prize.

The Thesis Prize for the best PhD thesis in Biophysics or Biomedical Engineering 2017 was awarded to Ineke Brouwer for her thesis “Probing biological interactions one molecule at a time – An optical tweezers analysis of protein-mediated membrane fusion and DNA repair”. She defended her thesis successfully at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam on September 19, 2016.
