"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."
