Biophysics Club

The Portland-area Biophysics Club features two half-hour talks per monthly session from local speakers on a range of biophysics topics. Although the club meets at OHSU, all local scientific organizations are welcome. The sessions provide a great opportunity to advertise and get feedback on new work, as well as for junior lab members to speak. For the club, 'biophysics' is defined inclusively - experiment and computation, molecular and cell-scale studies (and beyond) - so please join us.

Schedule for 2018-19: All sessions are Tuesday from 4:15-5:30pm in CHH 3rd floor conference ctr

Oct 9 - Sean Maden (Nellore group), Dan Zuckerman
