"Biophysics take place" by Franco Malerba

3/29/2019
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

3/27/2019-3/29/2019
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. (https://www.explorableplaces.com/places/advanced-science-research-center-illuminationspace)

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

3/25/2019-3/29/2019
Kakamega, Kenya
MASINDE MULIRO UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, MEA AUDITORIUM AND SPD SCIENCE LABORATORIES 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).


Biophysical Research and Technologies Symposium

3/29/2019
College Station, TX
Texas A&M University Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building

The Biophysical Research and Technologies Symposium is a great opportunity for graduate students of all departments to show chase their research. This is a unique event for Texas A&M which will encourage research from all across campus to be put on display instead of focusing on one specific college or department. We will have poster and oral presentations throughout the afternoon.

Dialogues in the MIDST

3/27/2019
Istanbul, Turkey
Sabanci University, Universite Cad. Tuzla 34956 Istanbul Turkey

Protein-protein interaction (PPI) prediction is directly related to an in depth understanding of many biological processes. The morning session of this event covers theoretical information on the importance of PPIs, details about their role on binding, signaling, regulation as well the effect of mutations on these mechanisms. Since experimental procedures are expensive and hard to apply on a large scale, computational approaches have become important in detecting PPIs in large amounts of sequence and structural data. Thus, the approaches towards predicting PPIs with computational tools will be explained. The afternoon will be devoted to a hands-on session on a template-based protein-protein interaction tool, Protein Interactions by Structural Matching (PRISM).
