President’s welcome

Welcome to the Biophysical Society of Canada (BSC-SBC) website. The year 2014 marks a new beginning for the Biophysical Society of Canada, with several new members of the executive team. Together, we will continue the work of previous executive committees to improve the organization to serve you better. My priorities for the Society are to 1) foster biophysics research in Canada, 2) promote the career development of young biophysicists, and 3) serve as a strong advocate for biophysics research in Canada. I am honored to be the new President, and would very much appreciate hearing from you with your thoughts and suggestions at

John E. Baenziger, President

Society mixer and travel awards

Please join us for the Biophysical Society of Canada mixer at the US Biophysical Society meeting in Baltimore from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 8, 2015. The mixer will be held at the Pratt Street Ale House. A draw at the mixer from amongst the attendees will be held for one travel award. Our society will also provide merit-based travel support for student and post-doctoral members of the society to attend the meeting. More information to follow.

See you in Baltimore!

  • icon 1About BSC

    We are an organization that promotes the interests and science of Biophysics in Canada, as well as the training and career development of young scientists who have interests in the area of biophysics. We also serve as the official link with International Biophysicists through our involvement in the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB). What unites all of us is the use of sophisticated physical methods to study complex biological processes. Biophysics spans an ever growing array of disciplines, with important contributions to both life sciences and human health. If you have an interest in biophysics and would like to learn more, please join the Society and get connected!
