Welcome to EBSA 2023!
JULY 31 - AUGUST 4
An EBSA congress in Sweden is timely. In 1986, the first EBSA Workshop was hosted by the Swedish Biophysical Society and Professor Anders Ehrenberg, the first president of EBSA. In 2023, after a series of great EBSA meetings around Europe, the Swedish Society for Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology (SFBBM) is again, jointly with EBSA and Protein Society, proud to host the 14th EBSA congress at Stockholm University, supported by the Swedish National Committee for Molecular Biosciences (of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). In this meeting, we are honored to also collaborate with the Biophysical Society, IUPAB and SciLifeLab.
In Biophysics, we investigate properties of time, force, and motion in biomolecular assemblies and processes – from single molecules to cells and tissues - and relate these to biological function. Biophysics has evolved dramatically since 1986, and many Nobel prices have been awarded to biophysicists to previous EBSA Plenary Lecturers in the past, and Nobel Prize winners will also participate in the upcoming congress. The EBSA-2023 will be held at the Aula Magna at Stockholm University, which is also known for hosting the Nobel Lectures in Physics and Chemistry.
EBSA-2023 will offer a creative meeting ground for investigating how the most novel experimental, theoretical and computational approaches in Biophysics can be synergistically tailored to improve our understanding of biological function, and thereby build an even stronger scientific bridge between physics, biology and medicine.
We are much looking forward to learning more about your most recent findings at EBSA-2023, and to jointly enjoy novel breakthroughs in this wide and exciting field.
