The next MOSBRI scientific conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia

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 will be 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.
