DutchBioPhysics with joined BIOPM meeting 2021

The next annual two-day conference of DutchBioPhysics takes place on

Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 October 2021.

DutchBiophysics is organised and sponsored by NWO Domain Science (ENW), in co-operation with the Netherlands Society for Microscopy, the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology, and the Dutch Society of Cell Biology. 

Report Dutch Biophysics 2020

Dutch Biophysics 2020, on October 5 and 6 was for the first time in history DIGITAL and it was a great success. More than 400 researchers took part in the conference. 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).

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 2020 was awarded to João Silva for his thesis “Towards the physiologically relevant state with high-resolution solid state NMR”. He defended his thesis cum laude at the University of Utrecht on 13 November 2019 and is now working at MIT.

Thesis award winner 2020: Joao Medeiros Silva

 

Poster Prizes for the best posters at the conference 2020.

The best posters were selected in a two-step process. First a shortlist was made from votes by attendees in the conference app, from this shortlist a jury selected the top 3. All posters were of high quality, so choosing was not easy, but a top 3 selection had te be made.

The Poster Prize for the best poster at the conference was awarded to Lucia Baldauf (TU Delft) “Teamwork in motor protein filaments”. The second price was for Rob de Haas (Wageningen University and Research), the third price for Oane Gros (University Utrecht).

 

Congratulations to all the prize winners!

DutchBiophysics with joined BIOPM meeting 2020 GOES DIGITAL
Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 October 2020 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS  AND  REGISTRATION 


NWO has decided to go digital this year with DutchBiophysics 2020 and for the success of our event we need your input. The organisation acts in line with the measures the government takes to deal with the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, as the measures after 1 September are still unclear, we are going digital.

 

The organisation will do its utmost to present you with an equally exciting and inviting digital programme. We are currently in the process of finding the right platform, necessities, tools etc. to achieve this, but one thing is certain we need your input in the form of abstracts for oral presentations in order to make DutchBiophysics 2020 happen. The selected oral presentations will be included in the digital DutchBiophysics programme in parallel sessions similar to the previous editions but now via an online platform.

DutchBiophysics is organised and sponsored by NWO Domain Science (ENW), in co-operation with the Netherlands Society for Microscopy, the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology, and the Dutch Society of Cell Biology.
