The Physical Biology Circle Meeting will bring together European researchers at the leading edge of research in experimental and theoretical biological physics. The meeting aims at discussing research topics at the interface between physics and biology and at fostering interactions between key institutions playing a role in this quickly growing field.
Emphasis is put on the active participation of researchers on the PhD and postdoc levels with lots of opportunities for contributed talks by PhD students and postdocs. All fields of biophysics are welcome.
Among others, Prof. Guillaume Salbreux and Prof. Karsten Kruse are node coordinators. The meeting will be online and possibly, partly at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden.
Application deadline is 31st July 2021

From June 7-10, 2021, the Cluster of Excellence Physics of Life (PoL) is hosting a 4-day EMBO workshop to discuss recent advances in the field of biological physics, focusing on emergent principles that govern the dynamic organization of living matter.
Among other physicists, Prof. Guillaume Salbreux is in charge of the scientific organization.
This CUSO-funded Symposium will cover the development of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning technology, its application in Biology related areas and ethical issues arisen from AI development.
The symposium is open to everyone, and PhD students can receive credits through registering to CUSO StarOmics Doctoral Program.
“Meet the speaker” lunch is planned for student and postdocs.
Recent findings in neuroscience show that in science learning, new conceptions do not replace previous ones. Prof. Patrice Potvin, from the Univ of Montréal, will discuss the implication of these findings in neuroscience for science teaching and learning, especially with regard to conceptual change.
This conference is aimed primarily at researchers in science, education and the neurosciences.
Mercredi 26 février 14h -16h U 159 – Uni Dufour (in French)
Wednesday February 26, 6-7 pm, A150 – Sciences II (in English)

We are pleased to announce the third edition of the International Symposium on Chemical Biology organized by the NCCR Chemical Biology. The event will take place on January 22 to 24, 2020 at the Campus Biotech, Geneva, Switzerland. This major international event in the field of chemical biology will bring together leading scientists, comprising two keynote speakers (Prof. Laura Kiessling (MIT) and Prof. Giulio Superti-Furga (CeMM)) and thirteen outstanding speakers who will collectively cover topics around the engineering of proteins and small molecules, chemogenetic and optogenetic technologies for probing molecular and cellular interactions, technologies to probe active molecules in their native environment, etc.
The aim of this international event is to learn more about the latest advances in the field of chemical biology and to foster an open and dynamic dialogue amongst the scientists conducting this exciting research.
Registration is now open until December 16, 2019. Please, help us spread the word!
Fee waiver/travel grant fellowships are available. The event will also include a Poster & Young researcher prize session.
