The Covid-19 pandemic made the June 17-19 date for the 7th International Iberian Biophysics Congress unviable. We are therefore forced to postpone the congress to a future date, to be announced once an end to the present crisis is in sight.

We are pleased to present the second newsletter of the 7th International Iberian Biophysics Congress.


Updated programme

We are delighted to confirm the following invited speakers:

  • Anthony Watts (University of Oxford, UK) to Symposium 4 – Protein Structure, Dynamics and Function
  • Valerie Booth (University of Newfoundland, Canada) to Symposium 7 – Cell Biophysics
  • Stefanie Krämer (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) to Plenary Lecture IV

Please check the full programme at the conference site.
