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).

Biophysics Week Symposium

Parkville, Australia
Bio21 Institute, David Penington Building

The Australian Society for Biophysics is celebrating Biophysics Week on the 26th of March. To highlight the significant (local) scientific contributions in the field of biophysics, a mini-symposium with invited speakers from Victorian Universities will be held at the Bio21 Institute.

IBB Biophysics Week 2019 (IBW2019), Biophysical approaches to address regional problems across Iran

Tehran, Iran
Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of Tehran

“IBB Biophysics Week 2019 (IBW2019), Biophysical approaches to address regional problems across Iran, March 25–29, 2019” The World Biophysics Week 2019 (March 25–29), coincides with the Iranian New Year academic holiday (21 March- 5 April), when most of the academics and students leave their institutions for their home towns. Accordingly, we are going to use this opportunity to identify biophysical related problems in different cities and regions of Iran, gather the required data and information, and to make a list of responsible officials in charge as well as the local graduates and ordinary people who can participate in defining and implementing possible solution. During the IBW2019, when non-academic governmental offices are reopened, the involved member of academics and students of IBB, will communicate with the corresponding people, arrange meetings, give talks, discuss the matter and form local network of people, organizations and identify possible sources of expertise and funds to conduct the survey and implement the approved solution. The group will try to arrange talks and meetings podcast through Internet so that the interested members of IBB and other institution enjoy remote participation. Furthermore, they will produce a report at the end of the IBW2019 event. Each day of the IBW2019 will be named after the most significant activity of that day. The reports will be distributed through the IBB network. The collected reports will be discussed at IBB once the academic activities was started in the New Year and form the basis for the ongoing research activities and might be considered as the project to be conducted through MSc or PhD thesis in Biophysics.
