About Biophysical Society BPS18:
Science is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, which means scientists worldwide need to gather to explore the interface of physical, life and computational sciences. This is done at Biophysical Society’s Annual Meeting, and BPS18 will be the 62nd yearly meeting for professionals and researchers within various scientific fields.

BPS18 is a dynamic 5-day meeting of the minds offering a small-talk feel but all of the resources of a global conference. The annual BPS event has a long-standing reputation of being the preeminent venue for science scholars and practitioners to meet with others in their industry, to discuss the latest unpublished findings as well as emerging applications and techniques.

This year’s BPS meeting is expected to draw roughly 6,500 attendees to an event that includes a Saturday subgroup symposia and more than 900 poster presentations over the 5 days. More than 500 speakers who were selected from submitted abstracts will talk at the meeting, and there will be career development programs specifically catering to scientists working in agencies and academia. The programs focus on education and advocacy within the science industry.

Key topics of discussion at BPS18 include Biophysical Mechanisms of Molecular Evolution, DNA Supercoiling and Translational Biophysics, among other subject matter. More than 150 exhibiting companies will present their offerings at BPS18 as they relate to bettering the scientific community.
