2017 Joint IUPAB & EBSA Meeting

2017 Joint IUPAB & EBSA Meeting

The 19th IUPAB congress and 11th EBSA congress is open for registration. Edinburgh, 16–20 July “ On behalf of the biophysics community in the UK, we would like to invite you to participate in the joint 19th International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) congress and 11th European Biophysical Societies’ Association (EBSA) congress in Edinburgh, Scotland in July 2017. The British Biophysical Society (BBS), together with the Biological Physics Group of the Institute of Physics (IOP), will be the local hosts and are taking on the task of assembling an outstanding scientific programme for this major international biophysics event.

EPS Workshop. Biology for Physics Conference: is there new physics in living matter

Barcelona, 15-18 January 2017. The contents of the workshop are organized under the umbrella of a few selected themes which all share the underlying playground of nonequilibrium physics which is at the core of living matter. Topics will include Physical principles of mechanochemical networks: new challenges for soft matter physics Systems biology and self-organization: from active matter to cells and tissues Stochastic thermodynamics: from single molecules to complex machinery Physics of biological evolution: from the second law to the selection of structures

Self-assembled peptides: from nanostructure to bioactivity

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, UK The meeting, organised by Professor Ian Hamley, Professor Dek Woolfson, Professor Louise Serpell, Dr Alberto Saiani and Professor Raffaele Mezzenga, takes place on 24 – 25 October 2016 will discuss exciting emerging themes enhancing our understanding of self-assembly of peptides. Recent research into the control of peptides has allowed the creation of unique structures that have enhanced or targeted bioactivity. By controlling their self-assembly, their usage can be expanded into fields such as drug development, tissue engineering and combating antimicrobial resistance, and more can be learnt about their role in diseases such as Alzheimers and Diabetes, with potential therapeutic gains.
