Biophysical Society announces speakers for Future of Biophysics Burroughs Wellcome Fund Symposium

December 11, 2013

The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the speakers for the Future of Biophysics Burroughs Wellcome Fund Symposium. Now in its fifth year and supported by supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, the Symposium highlights exciting research by young investigators at the interface of the physical and life sciences. The Symposium will take place on Monday, February 17, 2014, in San Francisco, California as part of the Biophysical Society's 58th Annual Meeting.

The 2014 speakers and their talk titles for the Symposium are:"The Future of Biophysics Symposium is a great opportunity to showcase some of the tremendous talent among the early-career members of the BPS," said Robert Nakamoto, the chair of the session. "Unfortunately, we can only have four talks, but they will be very exciting. The speakers are from different areas using a variety of approaches to emphasize the broad range of interests, and the depth of creativity and innovation in our Society."
