The Biophysical Society of Japan

Understanding biological phenomena is one of the aims for natural science. Interdisciplinary approaches by applying physical techniques to biological sciences are coming to unveil those questions. The Biophysical Society of Japan is to advance collaboration of researchers from different disciplines by providing a place for exchanging knowledge, methods and techniques and is to promote biological sciences for further understanding of biological phenomena.
