Purpose of the course:

This Course aims to present the state-of-the-art in pure and applied Biophysics and discuss future research directions linking current knowledge with the most recent ideas and methods. It is an ambitious course having its roots in the history of the Italian Biophysical Society of Pure and Applied Biophysics, SIBPA, established 50 years ago in Italy in a network of scholars between the Universities and the National Research Council, CNR. SIBPA was founded 50 years ago in Parma, and its inaugural congress was carried out in the same year in Camogli, electing Antonio Borsellino as its first President. The ambition of this Course is to reflect the fact that Biophysics is a scientific discipline without boundaries, a boundless territory of knowledge where the critical question of biology, "What is life?" is addressed and studied with the methodological and conceptual framework of physics. The beauty of Biophysics lies in the natural propensity to seek those regularities descending from physical laws that make the living unique in a kind of succession of "chance" and "necessity". The power of Biophysics lies in its temporal and spatial scalability.

From these considerations, we decided to build a program linked by six keywords that, in the centennial of the National Research Council, also recall the one of the birth of Italo Calvino, one of the most beloved Italian writers, namely: lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility, multiplicity, and consistency.
