Biophysical Society names 5 2013 award recipients

The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the recipients of four of its 2013 Society awards. These individuals will be honored at the Awards Symposium at the Society's 57th Annual Meeting on Tuesday, February 5 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. In addition to receiving their awards at that time, each will give a presentation. The awardees are:

Carol Robinson, University of Oxford, United Kingdom, will receive the Anatrace Membrane Protein Award for pioneering the development of advanced mass spectrometry techniques for the study of integral membrane protein structure, assembly and dynamics.

Joseph Zasadzinski, University of Minnesota, will receive the Avanti Award in Lipids for his careful, quantitative application of physical principles of self-assembly, directed assembly and bio-mimicry to create well-controlled lipid structures for biomedical applications.

Patricia Clark, University of Notre Dame, will receive the Michael and Kate Brny Award for Young Investigators for her significant contributions to the biophysics of protein folding in the cell, which have provided new directions of research for both experimentalists and theoreticians.

Jennifer Ross, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Katherine Henzler-Wildman, Washington University, St. Louis, will receive the Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award. Ross is being honored for her innovative and productive research in the field of molecular motors by using model systems to define how motors are regulated in the complex environment of the cell. Henzler-Wildman is being honored for her creative and unique studies that have influenced our understanding of the physical underlying principles of membrane transporters.
