Louis De Felice, Virginia Commonwealth University, will receive the Emily M. Gray Award for his enduring and multifaceted efforts to encourage the development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics through outreach and education.
Peter von Hippel, University of Oregon, will receive the Founders Award for establishing the principles which underlie the quantitative study of all protein-nucleic acid interactions.
The Biophysical Society, founded in 1956, is a professional, scientific Society established to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. The Society promotes growth in this expanding field through its annual meeting, monthly journal, and committee and outreach activities. Its 9000 members are located throughout the U.S. and the world, where they teach and conduct research in colleges, universities, laboratories, government agencies, and industry.
