Veldhoven, 2-3 October
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND REGISTRATION
You are cordially invited to DutchBiophysics 2017, the annual Dutch Meeting on Molecular and Cellular Biophysics, to be held on 2 and 3 October at the NH Koningshof in Veldhoven.
The meeting is a joint event with the Netherlands Society for Microscopy (NVvM, http://www.microscopie.nl), the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology (http://www.biopm.nl), and the Dutch Society of Cell Biology (http://dutch-society-cell-biology.nl/).
Deadline for the Thesis Award that will be presented at the Veldhoven Meeting is July 1st 2017
Dutch Biophysics 2016, on October 3rd and 4th in de Koningshof Veldhoven, was a great success. At this conference, co-organized by FOM, ALW, the Netherlands Society for Microscopy and the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (BIOPM), about 500 biophysicists, biologists and biomedical engineers gathered and discussed their latest research, in plenary lectures and parallel sessions.
BIOPM sponsored two key prizes: the poster prize and the annual thesis prize.
The Thesis Prize for the best PhD thesis in Biophysics or Biomedical Engineering 2016 was awarded to Gerrit Sitters, for his thesis "Probing the Blueprint of Life: the development and application of novel single-molecule methods". Gerrits successfully defended his thesis at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, December 3rd 2015.
The Poster Prizesfor the best posters at the conference were awarded to:
The thesis award is granted each year for the best PhD thesis in the area of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering.
The award consists of a certificate and a prize of €2016 to be spent at the laureate's wish.
The research will be judged on the basis of:
New insights obtained by this work
Accessibility for non-specialists
Candidates have obtained their PhD degree at a Dutch university, on research in the area of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering. The PhD ceremony must be between August 1, 2016, and August 1, 2017. The candidate, or his (co)–promotor, must be a member of the Society. The candidate is willing to present his/her work at the Dutch Biophysics conference, in Veldhoven, NL, on October 2rd, 2017, at 15.00 hrs. See the conference website for an impression:
A submission consists of a link to a pdf version of the thesis, to be sent by e-mail to:
In addition, the candidate must submit a motivation letter of at most 1 A4, describing why his/her work is important, and why it deserves this award.
The list of candidates will not be made public.
The jury will be appointed by the board of the Society.
