About the webinar series

As part of the scientific activities of the 2021 IUPAB-SBBq-SBBf virtual meeting, a Young Scientist Program Webinar series is held between May and September, covering different areas of biochemistry and biophysics.

The webinars comprise a 40 min talk from a leading scientist in the field and three to four short talks from young scientists from different parts of the world, selected from senior graduate students and recent PhDs candidates worldwide.

The talks are followed by time to questions and discussion in a 2h total activity. The YSP webinar series will be a unique opportunity for the discussion of novel scientific results and ideas in forefront areas of research in Biochemistry and Biophysics.
