Dear SPBf members,
It is a great pleasure to introduce the Portuguese Young Biophysicists (PYBphy) group!
The PYBphy is an affiliated group of the Portuguese Biophysics Society, intended to represent the young researchers (undergraduate, graduated, PhD students and also early post-docs) working in Biophysics.
Our main goals are to dynamize and unite the biophysical community, by organizing events such as meetings and conferences, as well as promoting and diffusing biophysics towards Society and the general scientific community.
Currently, the PYBphy group is represented by a group of PhD students, coming from all across the country.
You can follow our updates on Instagram and Facebook:
Share our group with your pairs, friends and labmates, because we want to reach as many people as possible. If you want to reach us, you can also use our email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Every news will be launched on social networks. Stay tuned!
All the best
Portuguese Young Biophysicists (PYBphy)
