Over 200 participants attended the 3rd MOSBRI scientific conference at the Grand Union Hotel (Ljubljana, Slovenia) organized by the National Institute of Chemistry (NIC). The programme covered 7 thematic sessions, with some of the sessions co-organised with ARBRE, Instruct-ERIC and the Slovenian Biophysical Society. There were oral presentations by MOSBRI consortium members, TNA beneficiaries, industry representatives and other invited EU and international scientists. Moreover, 78 posters were displayed, and 14 industrial sponsors presented the latest developments in biophysical instrumentation. The meeting provided a platform for international scientific exchange and showcased the newest developments in molecular-scale biophysics and related areas. Prizes were awarded for best posters, as well as best oral and TNA beneficiary presentations (see below).

Following on from the previous scientific conferences at Institut Pasteur, (Paris, June 2022), and Patio de la Infanta (Zaragoza, June 2023), this new opportunity to network was well attended and highly appreciated, notably during the two evening poster sessions and the conference dinner. During the dinner, participants were entertained by the Slovenian musician Boštjan Gombač, a multi-instrumentalist and composer.

Molecular-scale biophysics focuses on the architecture, dynamics and interactions of the molecules of life: proteins, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides, lipids, by measuring their physical properties. It is fundamental to our understanding of how living organisms function, and for our ability to manipulate the function of these molecules, notably for therapeutic purposes. MOSBRI aims to address the urgent need for a truly integrated and multi-method approach to modern biophysics. To this end, MOSBRI conferences are central to the exchange of ideas and technological approaches by experts in various fields of biophysics.

The third MOSBRI conference aims to bring together a larger community of researchers from the fields of structural biology, biochemistry, synthetic biology and biophysics. The conference will show how an interdisciplinary and integrated network can tackle an unusually wide variety of life science research questions. It will include plenary lectures, presentations by invited renowned experts, MOSBRI partners, short oral presentations, company presentations, as well as presentations by scientists who have already benefited from the free trans-national access (TNA) opportunities that MOSBRI provides. We will make a special effort to facilitate presentations by early career scientists.

The conference thematically follows on from the first two conferences, but is complemented by Emerging Approaches in Biophysics (co-organised by the Association of resources for Biophysical Research in Europe, ARBRE), Integrative Structural Biology (organised by Instruct-ERIC) and Molecular Bioimaging (organised by the Slovenian Biophysical Society).

We welcome you to Ljubljana, to spend a few days discussing exciting topics connected to biophysical research!

At the MOSBRI 2024 conference, prizes were awarded for the three best posters and the three best oral presentations, as well as two prizes for the best presentation of research conducted as part of MOSBRI TNA. Each prize is endowed with 200 euros and is supported by ARBRE, Applied Photophysics and PicoQuant. The prizes awarded by ARBRE also include an annual ARBRE membership for the year 2024.

We will grant 15 bursaries to PhD students and early stage post-doctoral fellows. The bursaries will cover the registration fee and 3 nights of accommodation. For more details on how to apply, see the registration page.

MOSBRI (Molecular-Scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure is a geographically distributed, scientifically and technologically integrated consortium, combining the distinct instrumentation and expertise of 13 academic centres of excellence and 2 industrial partners from 11 different European countries, coordinated by Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) and funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission.
