MICHÈLE AUGER AWARD FOR EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE TO THE BSC
The Michèle Auger Service Award is presented to members who have provided exceptional service towards the growth and development of the Biophysical Society of Canada.
The Biophysical Society of Canada (BSC) created the Michèle Auger Award for Exceptional Service in 2016 to honor the commitment and dedication of Dr. Michèle Auger. Dr. Auger has been a member since 1986, and has sat on the executive since 1994. She was treasurer from 1997 until 2014, and has served as secretary since 2010. In the latter role, she was responsible for creating the website. She has since implemented numerous website upgrades. She remains responsible for posting updates weekly on both the website and on Facebook! Dr. Auger has been an active and committed member of the executive of the BSC. The tremendous growth of the society has occurred in large part due to the exceptional work of Dr. Auger.
"Having been a BSC Executive since 1994, Dr. Auger has been an active and committed member responsible for growing the society. She provides weekly updates on both the website and social media for the BSC."
