DGfB Meeting 2022 Banner

German Biophysical Society Meeting 2022

It was a pleasure to welcome you at the German Biophysical Society (DGfB) Meeting  from September 25-28, 2022 at the University of Konstanz.

This international conference is held every two years and features an exciting program covering topics of the three subsections of the German Biophysical Society: Molecular Biophysics, Membrane Biophysics, and Cellular Biophysics. It is intended to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians presenting latest results on method developments and applications in the field of biophysics. The conference offers an ideal setting for the scientific exchange of junior and senior scientists coming from multidisciplinary research fields.


  • Biomolecules and their assemblies: from structure and dynamics to function
  • Photobiophysics, electron and proton transfer
  • Channels and transporters
  • Biophysics of membranes, membrane proteins and protein-lipid interaction
  • Cell biophysics, intracellular transport and signalling
  • Biomolecular simulations and computational biophysics
  • Biospectroscopy and imaging molecules of life
  • New techniques and challenges in biophysics

The program comprises invited talks and a large number of contributed talks selected from the abstracts. Poster presentations and an industry exhibition provide a great platform for traditionally very lively discussions.

A particular focus of the conference is the support of young researchers. We hosted a Young Investigator Award competition. In addition, three poster prizes were awarded.

We hope that you enjoyed the German Biophysical Society Meeting 2022, the inspiring scientific program and that you benefited from meeting colleagues, sharing cutting-edge results, discussing challenging problems and new directions in biophysical research.
We would be delighted to see you at the next DGfB meeting in Leipzig in autumn 2024!

With best regards,
Karin Hauser and Andreas Zumbusch
