Art & Science Day

Institute of Molecular Biosciences (IMB) - Humboldtstraße 48, Ground Floor, 8010 Graz
Graz, Austria

Science meets Art. Art meets Science. Join us for our Art&Science Day during the international Biophysics Week on 21.03.2024 at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Graz, where we present innovative ways to engage with Biophysics and its related research domains.

During this immersive one-day event, you'll encounter interactive hands-on stations and captivating lectures. Chemist and science illustrator, Dr. Verena Resch (, will explore the realm of "Science illustration and beyond," while science communicator and comic author, Dr. Ariane Pessentheiner (, will delve into "Science in comics – a means to tackle complexity." We extend a warm invitation to all, particularly children and young adults, for an afternoon of exploration and discovery. Immerse yourself in the world of comics, microscopy art, and protein modeling, among other activities, or unleash your creativity by crafting a unique biomembrane design.

Meet an Expert: Prof. Dr. Marta Filizola a Computational Biophysicist from Mount Sinai, New York, US

University of Marburg
Marburg, Hessen, Germany

At the ECI GPCR forum Zoominar on March 21st, we will host Prof. Dr. Marta Filizola from the Department of Pharmacological Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, located in New York, USA. Dr. Marta Filizola is a well-known computational biophysicist, and her group focuses on obtaining rigorous mechanistic insights into the structure, dynamics, and function of important classes of membrane proteins and prominent drug targets, including G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), transporters, channels, and beta3 integrins.

During the 1-hour session, we will be hearing about the career path of Prof. Filizola, the ups, and downs of her journey-especially as a woman scientist- and her recommendations to the ECIs in the field.This online event will give all ECIs in the field of computational biophysics/chemistry from all around the globe to join the session, benefit from the experience of a true expert, and take advantage of this unique opportunity to ask their questions directly from a senior scientist.  

The event does not require registration and it will be announced in and our X account: @GPCRzoominar
