The BSI hosts a programme of events that cover the spectrum of the biophysical sciences, designed to stimulate discussion and collaboration. Our events are open to all.
Synopsis: The inner workings of the human brain remain a scientific enigma, but there is a growing global consensus, epitomised by the €1B European Union Human Brain Project, that the time is right to employ the formidable computer power now available to us to try to unlock some of the brain’s secrets. The SpiNNaker project at the University of Manchester has been 20 years on conception and 10 years in construction, but is now ready for action, and a half-million processor SpiNNaker machine forms one of the two neuromorphic platforms offered openly under the auspices of the HBP to support brain science across Europe and beyond.
'Living Scales' #1: Joint IAS - BSI Workshop
- 20th and 21st March 2017, Cosin's Hall, IAS.
This IAS supported workshop tackles the question of the interaction of scale through the lens of self-assembled fibrillar systems.
Further details on this and the other 'Communicating Across Scales: biophysics and beyond' workshops can be found at www.durham.ac.uk/ias/events.
'Living Scales' #3: Joint IAS-BSI Workshop
- 23rd to 24th March 2017, Cosin's Hall, IAS.
This workshop will look at vision from light collection through to the images perceived by the subject and will also look at examples in which the image is created through sound rather than directly from light.

Howard Lecture Prize
The Howard Lecture is an annual lecture which celebrates world leading early to mid-career academics working in the biophysical sciences.
