Welcome to the Biophysical Society of Canada (BSC)! We are a dynamic and rapidly growing community of scientists from across Canada. The BSC sponsors an annual meeting, with the 2018 meeting taking place in Vancouver, British Columbia. In Vancouver, Dr. Natalie Strynadka from the University of British Columbia will be recognized as the 2018 Fellow of the Biophysical Society of Canada and will deliver the National Lecture. The BSC also sponsors student/postdoctoral merit and travel awards, publishes a semi-annual newsletter and holds mixers at the US Biophysical Society and American Physics Society annual meetings. For more information on the BSC and our mission, we invite you to explore our web site.

The BSC is the national adhering society to the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB). Through the IUPAB, we promote Canadian Biophysics on an International level.

Do not hesitate to send your thoughts and suggestions to me at John Baenziger. I look forward to seeing you May 23-25, 2018 in Vancouver for another exciting meeting of the BSC!

- John E. Baenziger, President of the BSC
