Welcome to the Biophysical Society of Canada (BSC)! We hope this website provides information about our activities and our community of Biophysics researchers in Canada. A primary aim of our society is to encourage growth and strength of Biophysics in Canada. To that aim, we offer many awards to our trainee members, including conference travel awards, poster awards at our annual meeting, and awards for theses and publications by trainees. We also offer awards for principal investigators: the Young Investigator Award and BSC Fellow awards, for outstanding contributions to Biophysics research, and the Michèle Auger Service award, for exceptional service towards the growth and development of the Biophysical Society of Canada. We also host a job board (free to members), and encourage members with job postings and seeking jobs to use it. We organize networking mixers at the meetings of the American Biophysical Society and the American Physical Society March meeting. Our annual meeting offers an excellent opportunity to forge and renew connections among members of the Biophysics community in Canada, and we hope you will join us at a future meeting! Please sign up for membership – it’s very affordable! – so we can keep you informed about events and opportunities of relevance to Canadian Biophysicists.

Nancy Forde, Biophysical Society of Canada President 2021-2023
