Biophysics Austria is a non-profit making scientific society, founded 1961, with the aim to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. The society provides a platform for all academia and industry related to the study of biological phenomena at the molecular level in all life forms using approaches that interface mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacology and medicine.

Biophysics Austria organizes annual meetings and promotes young scientists in the field of biophysics.

The society provides information assisting recruitment of personnel and offers industry to act as sponsors. Biophysics Austria is affiliated with the European Biophysical Societies' Association (EBSA). Members of the society are, therefore, eligible to benefits, such as free online access to the European Biophysics Journal and a special 30% discount on all English-language Springer books. For details, see links.

ÖGMBT Meeting

Annual Biophysics Austria Meeting: September 9th 2015, Salzburg, Austria

Biophysics is the bridge between biology and physics. To foster interactions with biology, it has thus become tradition to liaise with the ÖGMBT and hold the Annual Biophysics Austria Meeting as satellite of the Annual ÖGMBT meeting. In our Biophysics Austria meetings we highlight recent advances of Biophysicists in Austria, including cell biophysics, membranes, channels & transporters, nanoscale biophysics, proteins, nucleic acids, systems biophysics, theoretical biophysics, biophysical techniques, and new emerging areas. This year’s session chair will be Werner Baumgartner (Biomedical Mechatronics, Johannes Kepler University Linz).

Please register via the official ÖGMBT registration site. There is reduced registration fee for Biophysics Austria members: just indicate your membership in the comments box. We are looking forward to meeting you in Salzburg!
