Biophysical Society Annual Meeting

The 53rd Annual Meeting will be held on Feb. 28 - Mar. 4, 2009, in Boston, Massachusetts. With over 6,000 attendees, the annual meeting is the largest gathering of biophysicists around the world. More than 3,000 abstracts are submitted each year, which are programmed into poster and platform sessions. The meeting includes Symposia, Workshops, Minisymposia, Subgroup programs, and the National Lecture, as well as Educational Exhibits, Exhibitor Presentations, and Committee Events.


Cell Press is proud to become responsible for publishing the Biophysical Journal with the first issue of 2009. To facilitate the transition from the journal's previous web site, all content will be freely accessible for the first three months. Members of the Biophysical Society will receive an email in late March explaining how to set up their online access to the journal.
