General information

DutchBiophysics is the annual two-day conference on molecular and cellular biophysics. The aim of this conference is to bring together all Dutch research groups in these two fields of biophysics. DutchBiophysics takes place on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 October 2020.

DutchBiophysics 2020 goes digital!

NWO is acting in line with the measures taken by the cabinet to tackle the coronavirus. Because it is not yet clear what the measures will be after 1 September, NWO has decided to go digital with DutchBiophysics this year.

The organisation is doing its utmost to offer participants an interesting and inviting digital programme. We are currently working on the form of the digital congress. 

We need your input to make the digital DutchBiophysics 2020 possible! We hereby repeat the call to submit abstracts for oral presentations. The selected oral presentations will be included in parallel sessions in the conference program, similar to the previous editions, but now via an online platform.

DutchBiophysics programme

The programme of DutchBiophysics consists of a keynote presentation, various plenary sessions with invited national and international speakers, parallel sessions and poster presentations on various specific themes. During the conference, the BioPM Thesis Prize and the BioPM Poster Prize will be awarded by the Association for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology (BioPM).


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, biomedical engineering and applications.


Dutch Biophysics is organised and sponsored by the NWO domain Exact and Natural Sciences (ENW), in collaboration with the Dutch Society for Microscopy (NVvM), the Association for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology (BioPM), and the Dutch Society for Cell Biology (DSCB).
