AWARDS OF THE BIOPHYSICAL SOCIETY
The BSC sponsors awards to recognize the contributions of our members to biophysics. Outstanding Canadian researchers who have made exceptional contributions to biophysics are recognized as Fellows of the Biophysical Society of Canada and are selected to give the National Lecture at the BSC annual meeting. New in 2019, outstanding Canadian early career investigators are recognized with the Young Investigator Award, and are also selected for a plenary lecture at the BSC meeting. Contributions to the BSC are recognized by the Michele Auger award for exceptional service.
The Society supports trainees with travel awards to both the US Biophysical Society meeting and the annual meeting of the BSC. The BSC sponsors awards for the best poster/oral presentations at the BSC annual meeting.
