2021 Annual Meeting of the BSC

6th Annual BSC Meeting | May 25-28, 2021 | Remote | Halifax, NS

6th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society of Canada

BSC 2021

Welcome to the 6th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society of Canada! Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s meeting will be held virtually. Despite this change in venue, this meeting offers attendees the opportunity to learn about exciting new developments in biophysics research and a great chance to network with peers from across North America.

The 2021 meeting is dedicated to biophysical techniques and discoveries that have revolutionized research leading to critical advancements in medicine, biotechnology, material sciences, and biosensing. The conference will commence with a Trainee Symposium on May 25th, and features the National Lecture (John Rubinstein), two plenary lectures (Catherine Royer and Albert Stolow), oral presentations given by both established and emerging researchers, as well as the recipients of BSC awards. All attendees are invited to participate in the Trainee Symposium on May 25th, which will consist of a career session and a venue for trainees to share their research accomplishments. With the pandemic, having engaging poster sessions has been exceptionally difficult, and we are excited to be hosting a poster session which will approximate the real thing and allow for easy interactions and networking to occur. At the end of the meeting there is a BYOB (bring your own beverage), so that we can all connect.

We are grateful to our many company sponsors for their generous support, as well as departments and faculties from Dalhousie and Saint Mary’s University. Finally, we thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us. We are excited to meet you and look forward to a great meeting!
