Since the first Current Topics symposium was held in 2014, we have been looking forward to organizing the 2nd Symposium on Current Topics in Molecular Biophysics (CTMB2). This event will take place September 24-26, in Santos, Brazil. The aim of the meeting is for leading experimental and theoretical researchers from around the world to discuss the challenges faced as the field aims to establish a quantitative understanding of the physical principles that govern biology. This intense three-day meeting, which is focused on molecular processes, will immediately precede the Brazilian Biophysical Society Annual Meeting, which will also be held in Santos. With the complementarity of these two events, we encourage all attendees to stay for both.
