Polymers and Self- Assembly: From Biology to Nanomaterials
October 25-30, 2015
Windsor Excelsior Hotel
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

 Many proteins assemble into polymers, both naturally (as in actin and tubulin) and pathologically (as in amyloid). The study of the structure and function of these biological polymers has been an important area of research by biophysicists. A large and growing community of chemists, chemical engineers, physicists, and materials scientists have been investigating the self-assembly of peptides for many purposes, from creating new bionanomaterials to forming assemblies for drug delivery. The aim of this meeting is to bring together these multidisciplinary areas to share techniques and innovations, advancing our understanding of these complex systems.

CAUTION: The Biophysical Society has been informed that an unidentified company is contacting participants of the Polymers and Self-Assembly Meeting, claiming to have an arrangement with the Biophysical Society to make housing arrangements for the meeting. 

Please note that the Society has NO such agreements. We have NOT contracted any housing provider to call our participants. We recommend you to not return their calls/emails and to not book any hotel rooms with them.

If you have any doubt regarding a request concerning the meeting, please feel free to contact the Society at 240-290-5600. Housing information will be available via this website in the coming weeks.


The Biophysical Society would like to thank the following sponsors for their 
generous support of this meeting.
