BIOPM joins DutchBiophysics meeting 2015

Monday 28 September 2015, De Koningshof, Veldhoven.

The board of the Society for Biophyiscs and Biomedical Technology (BIOPM) has decided to join DutchBiophysics, the very successful annual meeting on molecular and cellular biophysics, microscopy and, new from this year, biomedical engineering. The meeting consists of plenary sessions, with invited presentations by (inter)national speakers, and specialized, parallel oral and poster sessions. The total meeting will last for two days, Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 September. Two dedicated biomedical engineering sessions will take place on Monday.

At this meeting, BIOPM will award the biannual PhD thesis prize and poster prizes. For BIOPM and its members DutchBiophysics will replace the Day of Biophysics and Biomedical Technology.

In April, further details about the program and a call for abstracts will be announced and the registration site will open. Further information will appear on this site.

Access to IFMBE Springer journals

After a long break finally some news again from our society. It is not that nothing happened, just that circumstances prevented updating the website.

One major thing to mention is that we now can access the IFMBE journals that are published by Springer via this website. See the Links/Journal Links menu for instructions

Dag van Biofysica & Biomedische Technologie 2013


An audience of about 100 biophysists had a very stimulating day during the “Dag van Biofysica & Biomedische Technologie” held at the VU on Friday, November 22nd.

Unique to this event, the award of the Biophysics & BMT Thesis Price was decided for the first time on the day itself. Three nominees – selected by a jury on the basis of the very high scientific quality of their thesis - each gave an excellent and very interesting talk. Following a public vote, it was decided that Nienke Bosschaardt of the Academic Medical Center of the UvA gave the best presentation and she was therefore awarded the Thesis Price 2013. Petra van Houdt of the VU University Medical Center received the second, and Koen Haak of the University Medical Center Groningen received the third price. The price for best poster of the day went to Boy Braaf from the VU.
