Invited Talk Physics Plenary (2)


Tjaart Krüger (University of Pretoria, South Africa)


n the past couple of decades, biophysics not only contributed to great advances in solving important and fundamental questions in biology, but it has also shown to be a notable source of innovation. In fact, biophysics is a fundamental enabling science in medicine, agribusiness, industrial biotechnology and even sustainable energy. Despite the important role it must play in the development of every country’s bioeconomy, Africa remains woefully under-invested in biophysics. This presentation will discuss the current status and impact of biophysics in Africa in terms of education and research capacity development.
