The 2014 speakers and their talk titles for the Symposium are:

  • William Greenleaf, Stanford University, "Off Label" Uses of Sequencing Technology to Explore the Physical Genome;
  • Mary Kraft, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Sphingolipid and Cholesterol Distribution in the Plasma Membrane by High-resolution SIMS;
  • Elijah Roberts, Johns Hopkins University, The Influence of Extrinsic Fluctuations on the Decision of Cells; and
  • Megan Valentine, University of California, Santa Barbara, How Can Labile Bonds Lead to Tougher Networks? The Unexpected Role of Crosslinker Kinetics in Determining Cytoskeletal Mechanics.

"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."
