Welcome to the Australian Society for Biophysics

The Australian Society for Biophysics (ASB) represents researchers, teachers, and others with an interest in the application of physical and physicochemical methods to the study of biological systems. The first meeting of the Society was held in 1975 and since then the Annual Meeting of the society is among the largest gathering of Biophysicists in Australia and New Zealand.

The Society has a long-standing tradition of encouraging early career researchers, and this is reflected in student bursaries, poster and best talk prizes and the Young Biophysicist Award. We endorse a collaborative, inclusive community aimed at showcasing and celebrating advances in the field of biophysics.
