Sociedad Española de Biofísica
The Spanish Biophysical Society (Sociedad de Biofísica de España, SBE) was established in 1986 with the main goal of favoring contact among biophysicists working in Spain and among these and the international Biophysics community. To fulfill these objectives SBE organizes a national scientific Meeting every year with 150-200 participants and about 60 scientific communications, and funding young members to attend this Congress.
To support the international contacts SBE is a member of the European Biophysical Societies Association (since 1987), the Latinoamerican Federation of Biophysical Societies (since 2012) and the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (since 1986).
The recent years have seen a very important expansion of SBE with a significant increase in our number of members (nowadays 450). The Council of the Society (Junta Directiva) is very committed to follow this way since as we increase our size we become stronger in order to fulfill our objectives. To help with this and also to facilitate a closer contact of SBE with our members and with the Spanish society we have appointed local representatives in each geographical region who will be the eyes and ears of the Society.
Each year SBE awards three Prizes, the Manuel Rico-Bruker Prize, the Enrique Pérez Payá Prize and the SBE-33 Prize to recognize the excellence of work in the field of Biophysics.
