Notice on the 2022 Chinese Biophysics Congress

Updated: 2022-07-05

The Chinese Biophysics Congress is the largest high-level academic event in China’s biophysical sciences. It also marks a significant gathering of scientific workers engaged in biophysics and related fields. Xu Tao, president of the Biophysical Society of China and an academician with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, will serve as chair of the conference. With the theme "Biophysical Frontier and Human Health", the congress will gather scholars, specialists, scientists and entrepreneurs at home and abroad to discuss the latest research progress, development trends and bottleneck problems of biophysics and related research fields.

The conference consists of five major parts: the plenary session, sub-forums, featured forums, exhibitions and negotiation, and themed activities. It will be held both in-person and online for academic exchanges, industrial updates, education, and science communication, providing an ideal platform for exhibitors to release new products, display new technology, promote brands, and expand the market.
