We expect the typical audience member to be a PI or advisee working on BP/PB (Biological Physics/Physical Biology), very broadly defined. Our goal is to keep each other informed of exciting other things going on in biophysics outside of our own little silos, and importantly, to introduce early career people to the exciting possibilities in biophysics research.
