Australian Society for Biophysics


22nd Annual Conference


December 4 - 6, 1998

The 22nd Annual Conference was held in the Robertson Theatre, Research School of Biological Sciences, The Australian National University Canberra from the 4th to 6th December, 1998. There were 90 registrants who witnessed an exciting and varied program of 51 talks and 19 posters in 2.5 days! The plenary lecture was given by Professor G. Babcock, Department of Chemistry, University of Michigan.

Many thanks must go to the program organisers Dr Robyn Cleland and Dr Fred Chow and, in particular, the Conference Chairman, Dr Tom Wydrynski, for putting together such an excellent program that ran so smoothly. Thanks also to the numerous overseas participants who joined us in Canberra for ASB98.

The standard of talks and posters by graduate students and young postdoctoral researchers was extremely high, which made judging the student and Young Biophysicist Awards very difficult. After much deliberation, the judges made the following awards:


Scientific topics that were covered at the conference included:
Spectroscopy & Energy Transfer Bioimaging
Structure & Recognition  Bioenergetics
Protein Mechanics  Channels
Water in Biological Systems

The program contained six international and 12 national invited speakers as well as an ample contribution oral and poster presentations.
