President’s welcome

2015 was an exciting year for the BSC. The BSC offered trainee travel and merit awards, sponsored mixers, and organized the 1st Annual Biophysical Society of Canada meeting June 17th - 19th at the University of Waterloo. Drs. Ian Smith and Richard Epand were recognized as Fellows of the BSC for their outstanding contributions to biophysics. More information regarding BSC events can be found in the BSC newsletters. The 2nd annual BSC meeting will be held in Winnipeg from June 1 – 3, 2016 and boasts an outstanding array of speakers. Dr. Lewis Kay from the University of Toronto will be recognized as the 2016 Fellow of the BSC, and will present the National Lecture. Please join us in creating a vibrant Biophysical Society of Canada. Do not hesitate to send me your thoughts and suggestions at John.Baenziger@uottawa.ca.

  • 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!
