We are pleased to announce the 10th Regional Biophysics Conference & 15th Greta Pifat-Mrzljak International School of Biophysics organized by the School of Medicine, University of Split and the Croatian Biophysical Society from 26 August  to 30 August 2024 in Split, Croatia.

The Regional Biophysics Conference (RBC) was founded by the biophysical societies of Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia with the aim of presenting the latest developments in experimental, theoretical and applied biophysics. The high quality of the RBC and its long tradition attract leading experts in the field to share the latest research results and perspectives on recent breakthroughs in this dynamic, interdisciplinary field.

The RBC places great emphasis on building and strengthening research collaborations and working with instrument manufacturers to present new methodological and technological discoveries to a large community of scientists and potential customers. Special attention is paid to young researchers and students.

To increase the interest of young researchers in RBC, this year a special session will be dedicated to the two-day 15th Greta Pifat-Mrzljak International School of Biophysics. For more information about the school, click here.

A significant multinational community of about 150-200 participants from Europe working in the field of biophysics is expected. The science at the conference is generally of the highest quality. Leading experts in the field of biophysics promote collaboration and networking, which is of great importance for the career development of young researchers and students.

The event offers a stimulating program of  lectures and poster sessions covering a wide range of biophysical topics and methods: molecular biophysics; biointerfaces, bioinspired materials, membrane transport; membranes and membrane proteins: structure, function, dynamics; neurobiophysics; biophysics of viruses; cell biophysics and nanomechanics; drug delivery – synthesis, characterization, modeling; advanced imaging and spectroscopic techniques; computational methods and machine learning.

We look forward to welcoming you all to the Regional Biophysics Conference & 15th Greta Pifat-Mrzljak International School of Biophysics to engage in exciting debates, explore new ideas and initiate new collaborations! Come and join us at the Faculty of Medicine in Split!

Split is a Croatian coastal city on the east coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is the second largest city in Croatia and the administrative capital of Split-Dalmatia County. Split is known for its stunning architecture, fascinating history and beautiful surroundings. Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the city’s most famous landmark. This palace was built in the 4th century by the Roman Emperor Diocletian and has been the center of the city ever since.
