AWARDS OF THE BIOPHYSICAL SOCIETY
The BSC sponsors awards to recognize the contributions of our members to biophysics, biophysical chemistry or the BSC. Outstanding researchers who have made exceptional contributions to biophysics or biophysical chemistry are recognized as Fellows of the Biophysical Society of Canada and are also selected to give the National Lecture at the BSC annual meeting. Contributions to the BSC are recognized by the Michele Auger award for exceptional service.
We support our trainees with travel awards to both the US Biophysical Society meeting and the annual meeting of the BSC. The BSC sponsors awards for the best poster and oral presentations at the BSC annual meeting.
