Biophest 2018

The University of Arizona’s Biological Physics Program (BPP) and the Arizona State University Center for Biological Physics will host the 15th Annual Biophest conference on Saturday, May 05, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m in Room 103a of the Keating Building at the BIO5 Institute on the University of Arizona campus.

The Biophest will include breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Breakfast, coffee socializing, and networking will begin at 8:00 a.m., and the presentations start at 9:00 a.m.

The Biophest is a student-driven and student-organized conference and it is currently in its 15th year. This annual event, hosted alternately by the UA and ASU, is a one-day symposium of researchers who work at the interface of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. The conference entails both platform and poster presentations by graduate (or undergraduate) students, post-doctoral scientists, and faculty. The meeting brings together cutting-edge Biophysics work at the two Arizona universities to stimulate communication, collaborative research, and funding opportunities.

You are invited to register (free!) for the event and to submit an abstract. You can choose the preferred presentation type: platform talk, poster, or either. Poster awards will be announced at the end of the Biophest. We will accommodate as many platform presentations as time permits. Priority is given to student presenters and new faculty. A final schedule will be circulated following the registration deadline.

Submit your abstract here by 5 pm, Monday April 30, 2018

Abstract word limit is 300 words including title and abstract text. If there are corrections to a previously submitted abstract then re-submit and the most recent version will be used. If you plan to attend the Biophest but are not presenting a talk, then please enter "not presenting" on the title of the abstract. That will enable us to gauge the attendance.

More information, including directions to and a map of the venue, may be found on the Biophest website.
