Date:9/3/2010

The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2011 Society awards. The eight recipients will receive their awards at the Society's 55th Annual Meeting on Monday, March 7, 2011 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The awardees are:

Shelagh Ferguson-Miller, Michigan State University, will receive the Anatrace Membrane Protein Award for her seminal contributions to the field of molecular bioenergetics and advances in membrane protein biochemistry.

Eric Oldfield, University of Illinois, will be awarded the Avanti Award in Lipids for his pioneering research using NMR methods to investigate lipid membrane structure and for his work in drug discovery, targeting lipid biosynthesis.

Diane Lidke, University of New Mexico, will receive the Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award for her innovative work integrating the disciplines of biophysics, bioimaging, and quantitative biology.

Olaf Andersen, Cornell University, will receive the Distinguished Service Award for his distinguished service to the membrane biophysics and physiology communities and to the field of biophysics through his work at the Journal of General Physiology.

Bertil Hille, University of Washington, will receive the Emily M. Gray Award for his impact on biophysics through his research and authorship of the influential Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes, which has served as the "Ion Channel Bible" for biophysicists at all stages of their careers.

Attila Szabo, National Institutes of Health, will receive the Founders Award for his numerous contributions to the understanding and theoretical analysis of biophysical experiments.

Charalampos Kalodimos, Rutgers University, will receive the Michael and Kate Brny Award for Young Investigators for his work using NMR spectroscopy, combined with other biophysical methodologies, to determine the mechanisms underlying the functionality of large protein machineries.

Toshio Yanagida, Osaka University, will receive the U.S. Genomics Award for Outstanding Investigator in the Field of Single Molecule Biology for his important contributions to single molecule fluorescence microscopy.
