On October 6, 2017, the Penn State College of Medicine will host the 5th Biophysical Society Central PA Regional Networking Meeting. Previous conferences have successfully brought together biophysics researchers, educators, and trainees in the Mid-Atlantic region. This event is designed to provide opportunities for those broadly interested in biophysics to share their research and develop collaborations. The opportunity for trainees to present their work at a regional conference is invaluable. There will be several slots for students and postdocs to give talks. There will also be two poster sessions and a keynote talk.
