"Biophysics take place" by Franco Malerba

Genoa, Italy
Piazza Matteotti 9, 16123 Genoa (GE) Italy

From the stimuli of research in Biophysics to the difficult challenge of space travel: the astronaut Franco Malerba recounts his experience and scientific consequences, also retracing the years spent in the laboratories of the CNR Institute of Cybernetics and Biophysics in Camogli (Genova) and the National Institute of Health, and how these have helped to prepare him for life in space.

A Biophysicist in the Kitchen

Córdoba, Argentina
School of Chemical Sciences Ciudad Universitaria, Haya de la Torre y Medina Allende, X5000HUA Córdoba, Argentina

The activity is presented as a gallery of stands where each one develops a fundamental concept of Biophysics, approached with several examples of common life in the kitchen. Reflective questions will be proposed about the biophysical properties of food and the processes that they experience in the kitchen and the knowledge or popular intuition will be compared with the scientific concepts of the discipline. (Translated)

La actividad se plantea como una galería de stands donde se desarrolle en cada uno un concepto fundamental de la Biofísica, abordados con varios ejemplos de la vida común en la cocina. Se propondrán preguntas reflexivas sobre las propiedades biofísicas de los alimentos y de los procesos que experimentan en la cocina y se cotejará el conocimiento o intuición popular con los conceptos científicos de la disciplina.

ASRC IlluminationSpace Field Trips

3/25/2019 & 3/27/2019
New York, New York
Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY

At the ASRC IlluminationSpace, located at the Advanced Science Research Center of The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, visitors explore five exciting and interconnected areas of science — nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience, and environmental sciences — in a fun and supportive environment to encourage a deeper understanding of how science shapes our everyday lives. Through interactive motion and touchscreen games and engaging conversations with researchers, visitors learn about the ASRC’s initiatives, inspiring them to search for science in the world around them. During Biophysics Week, we will highlight the role of biophysics in the ASRC's nanoscience, structural biology, and environmental sciences initiatives.

If you would like to attend we require visitors to register before they visit using our online booking platform. (

Biomimetics Brainiac Brain-Teasers

York University
4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M3J 1PE

The students and faculty of York University are invited to attend a live physics demonstration and discussion at a table in a public site on campus. The BPS York University Student Chapter Biophysics Club strives to introduce students to the wonderful field of biophysics. Students can also attempt a quiz uncovering a Biomyimetics themed secret message for a chance of winning a prize.


Tempe, Arizona
Center for Biological Physics, Arizona State University

This annual event allows scientists from Arizona with an interest in biological physics to meet for a day of short talks, posters and lively discussion. We especially welcome presentations from graduate students and postdocs, and also from researchers from biology and bioengineering whose interests overlap with biological physics. BioPhest is alternatingly organized and held at ASU and University of Arizona.

Biophysical Innovations The Solution to Current Challenges in Africa and the World

Kakamega, Kenya

Biophysics is the least exploited and emphasized field of study in Kenya and Africa as a whole. It is on this basis that we would like to make maximum use of the 2019 Biophysics week to reach out to potential Biophysical scholars in Kenya who are still at the university and high school. Lack of exposure and mentorship has been the cause of thwarted dreams among youths or misplacement of the scholars in fields. Achievements in Biophysics will be highlighted in the most interesting way possible. These activities are seen as an inspiration and a boost to enrolment in the new biophysics curriculum (Bsc. Biophysics) which is to be introduced in a number of universities which are members of the Biophysical Society Kenya chapter (BPS (K))in the year 2019. The Biophysicists will use this opportunity to share experiences, network, bond and disseminate their skills and knowledge to youthful scholars and peers. The occasion shall involve planery presentations, nature walk in Kakamega Forest in which Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) is located, High school Community Outreach in Mbale Boys High School, discussions and shows. Successes exhibited internationally will be shared. Finally, the attendees will be exposed to the importance of being members of the Biophysical Society and Biophysical Society (Kenya). This will also boost enrolment. The event will involve and not limited to Universities and schools around Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST).
