This event will combine theoretical lectures with practical classes and informal discussion sessions. The theoretical part will give the attendees an overview of several biophysics research areas and techniques. The hands-on approach will give some practical knowledge to learn how to address the problems and issues typically encountered during measurements. An informal session, where the work developed by the participants is presented in an unceremonious manner, will contribute to creating a sense of community among the participants. This inclusive approach will promote networking and strengthen the connections among biophysicists, hopefully triggering future productive collaborations.
