Network in Physical Virology

On November, the 13th, 14th and 15th  2019, the CIC bioGUNE (Bilbao; Spain) will host the meeting of the Spanish Network of Excellence in Physical Virology with the title:

Bridging biomedical and nanotechnology applications

During the two and half day meeting, national and international speakers will cover topics from the experimental analysis and modeling of structure, function and dynamics of viruses as well as applications of viruses in biomedical nanotechnology.


Trevor Douglas (Indiana University  - US)
Miklós Kellermayer (University of Pécs - Hungary)
Paul van der Schoot (Eindhoven University of Technology - Netherlands)
Cristian Smerdou (CIMA - Spain)
David I Stuart (University of Oxford/Diamond LS - UK)
Christina Wege (University of Stuttgart - Germany)

Registration opens on the 9th of September and closes on the 4th of October at this website. Abstracts from students and postdocs will be selected for oral presentation.

There is no registration fee but attendees (not members of Spanish network) are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. Registered participants (max 60 – on a first come first served basis) will receive the meeting booklet with abstracts, coffee and lunch.
Registration, abstract submission details and programme can be found here: www.cicbiogune.es/network-physical-virology

This Spanish network includes 10 research groups of 9 universities and research centres all over Spain. This multidisciplinary and pioneering Network pursues the coordination of the Spanish groups interested in the biophysics of viruses and the development of their biomedical and biotechnological applications at the frontier between physics, chemistry, biology and biomedicine.
