The Spanish-Italian-Portuguese-French Ion Channel Group (SIPF) and Società Italiana di Fisiologia (SIF) are pleased to announce that the 7th International Workshop on Structure and Function of Ion Channels and Transporters (SFICT) will be held in Sestri Levante, Genoa (Italy), the 2-5 October 2019. For this 7th edition of the workshop which gathers Italian, French, Portuguese and Spanish researchers from the ion channel field every two years, we are expecting a large international participation, which, through a format specially dedicated to young students and post-docs, will foster the exchange of results and ideas between renewed scientists and attendees in a friendly but stimulating environment.
Objective of the Workshop
To open a discussion forum for senior and junior researchers broadly interested in the field of ion channels and transporters, highlighting current research performed in laboratories from Italy, Spain, France and Portugal. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to attend and present their results as posters or short talks.
The price for a double room to share is 250 euros per student or per young post-doc. Single room is 300 euros. The registration fee includes: lectures, attendance certificate, 3-night-accomodation including breakfast, coffee breaks, 2 lunches, 1 social dinner. After the early registration deadline an extra fee of 30% will be applied.
The price for the participants who do not need any accommodation is 150 euros including lectures, attendance certificate, coffee breaks, 2 lunches, 1 social dinner.
We are pleased to announce that the SPBf Young Biophysicist 2019 prize has been awarded to Tiago Figueira (Instituto de Medicina Molecular), for the paper Tiago N. Figueira, Diogo A.

Dear SPBf members,
It is a great pleasure to introduce the Portuguese Young Biophysicists (PYBphy) group!
The PYBphy is an affiliated group of the Portuguese Biophysics Society, intended to represent the young researchers (undergraduate, graduated, PhD students and also early post-docs) working in Biophysics.
Our main goals are to dynamize and unite the biophysical community, by organizing events such as meetings and conferences, as well as promoting and diffusing biophysics towards Society and the general scientific community.
Currently, the PYBphy group is represented by a group of PhD students, coming from all across the country.
You can follow our updates on Instagram and Facebook:
Share our group with your pairs, friends and labmates, because we want to reach as many people as possible. If you want to reach us, you can also use our email (email@example.com).
Every news will be launched on social networks. Stay tuned!
All the best
Portuguese Young Biophysicists (PYBphy)
