We would like to invite you to participate at the 3rd MOSBRI conference, which will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from June 10–13, 2024. MOSBRI (Molecular-scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure) is a consortium of 13 academic centers of excellence and 2 industrial partners from 11 different European countries, coordinated by Institut Pasteur and funded by the Horizon 2020 program.The 3rd MOSBRI conference follows in the footsteps of the first two MOSBRI conferences, Paris 2022 and Zaragoza 2023, both of which attracted almost 200 participants from across Europe. The 3rd MOSBRI conference will continue to provide a carefully curated overview of the latest advances in biophysics, bringing together the new generation of young European biophysicists with established experts in the field. The full list of session topics includes

  • Macromolecular interactions, kinetics and dynamics,
  • Emerging approaches in biophysics (coorganized by Association of Resources for Biophysical Research in Europe),
  • Computational biophysics and AI applications,
  • Integrative structural biology (organized by Instruct-ERIC),
  • Macromolecular design, stability and quality control, and
  • Molecular bioimaging (organized by the Slovenian Biophysical Society).

With this diversity of topics, the conference continues to strengthen the connection within a wider community of researchers in structural biology, biochemistry, synthetic biology and biophysics by building bridges between different disciplines and engaging the audience in a multidisciplinary dialog.Lectures will include plenary talks by

  • Roman Jerala (National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia),
  • Lynne J. Regan (University of Edinburgh, UK),
  • Harald Schwalbe (Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Germany; Instruct ERIC) and
  • Andrej Šali (University of California at San Francisco, USA),

as well as 18 presentations by invited renowned experts from 12 countries worldwide, including members of the MOSBRI scientific advisory board from 6 MOSBRI centers.

Check out the full list of confirmed speakers. As at the two previous MOSBRI conferences, beneficiaries of MOSBRI transnational access (TNA) will give presentations on their work, which has been facilitated by access to the MOSBRI infrastructure. To ensure that the audience is informed about the latest advances in the innovative tools available, several presentations will be given by company representatives. To promote the visibility of young researchers, about 20 short presentations will also be selected from the abstracts of early bird registrants.

Registration for the conference is now officially open. Please note that we will grant bursaries to 15 PhD students. The bursaries include 3 nights accommodation and waiver of the registration fee. Apply by March 31st, 2024 and upload a single pdf file containing a short CV, a letter of motivation and a letter of support (max. 1 page for each).
