Goal and scope
The goal of the meeting is to assemble all groups that work on molecular and cellular biophysics, microscopy and biomedical engineering in the Netherlands. The meeting consists of plenary sessions, with invited presentations by (inter)national speakers, and special oral and poster sessions.
Topics include the biophysics of living cells and their membranes, the cytoskeleton, molecular motors, DNA- and RNA-protein interactions, theoretical biophysics, systems biology and networks, photosynthesis, and new developments in light and electron microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy, force probes, (bio)chemical synthesis, nanotechnology and biomedical applications and biomedical engineering. We welcome contributions from researchers studying these topics from an experimental, theoretical or modelling background.
