The School is focused on Biomolecular Complexes and Assemblies and takes place in Primošten, Croatia. Through the years, the School has been attended by more than one thousand Ph.D. students and postdocs interested in becoming acquainted with the state-of-the-art in biophysics. The lecturers have always been of the highest quality, including top scientists in their respective disciplines and several Nobel laureates.
In 2014 the Lecturers (list>>>) were from Germany (4), Croatia (4) and then Austria (2), USA (2), UK (2) and also from Australia, Switzerland, Sweden, France and Belgium. The Lecturers presented in total 50 lectures of about 45-60 minutes.
We had 74 students, 45 of them outside Croatia, 9 coming from Germany and also from Slovakia and Slovenia (4), Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Hungary, France (3), Italy and Spain (2), and Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Iran, Lithuania, Serbia, Sweden, the Netherlands and UK (1). Gender balance was well respected – more than a half were female students. According to the questionnaire that they filled, students were of rather diverse backgrounds, from molecular and structural biology, biochemistry, physical and computational chemistry to biophysics. Most (46) of the students presented a poster. Selected students (24 in total) presented their work also with a short, 10minute talk. University of Zagreb awarded 5 ECTS points to participants.
T. Vuletić, as the secretary of Croatian Biophysical Society Chaired the School. The rest of the organization team comes from the Ruđer Bošković Institute, Institute of physics, Zagreb and Phys.Dept. of the University of Zagreb.
