Overview

The accelerating pace at which biophysical techniques are advancing is driving a revolution in our understanding of life’s processes, from genetic circuits, to metabolic networks, to the functioning of the immune system, and the inner workings of the brain. These developments impact upon a wide, interdisciplinary range of scientific fields, from materials and polymer science, biotechnology, and biosensing to clinical, medical, and pharmaceutical research.

The Biophysical Society of Canada annual meeting offers attendees the opportunity to learn about exciting new developments in Biophysics research and to network with peers from across Canada and further afield.

Meeting Details

This year’s BSC 2019 Meeting will take place at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). The University of Toronto, Canada’s largest university, is composed of three campuses with the Mississauga campus (UTM) situated just west of the downtown Toronto core on 225 acres of protected greenbelt. The City of Mississauga has many opportunities for dining, shopping, and sightseeing in the Greater Toronto Area.
