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

Rockville, MD -- The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the speakers for the Future of Biophysics Burroughs Wellcome Fund Symposium. Now in its third 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 27, 2012 in San Diego, California as part of the Biophysical Society's 56th Annual Meeting.

The 2012 speakers for the Symposium are:

  • Jasna Brujic, New York University
  • Eva-Maria Schoetz, Princeton University
  • Keir Neuman, NIH
  • Liguo Wang, University of Washington
In putting the session together, William Zagotta and Sharona Gordon, both of the University of Washington and Co-Chairs of the Symposium and the Program Committee, noted, "Promoting the careers of early-career scientists is perhaps the most important thing that the Society does. Especially in the current economic conditions, in which we risk losing a generation of well-trained, highly qualified researchers, showing junior scientists that their work is valued is of paramount importance. These scientists, and many more we wish we could have chosen, represent the future of Biophysics."

Burroughs Wellcome Fund, a private foundation in Research Triangle Park, supports researchers conducting interdisciplinary work between biology and physics.
