Fellows of BSC


Fellows are scientists who have made exceptional contributions to biophysics. Fellows are chosen by the executive based on a recommendation from the awards committee after nominations by BSC members.

Nomination Deadline: June 30, 2022

We solicit nominations for Fellows of the Biophysical Society of Canada. All members of the Biophysical Society of Canada who are in good standing are welcome to submit a nomination of deserving candidates for the award by e-mailing a nomination package to Justin MacCallum.

Nominees for Fellows must be Canadian or working in Canada.

Complete nomination packages must be sent to Justin MacCallum. Only nominations received by the deadline will be reviewed and ranked through votes by the executives of the Biophysical Society of Canada. Nominations in all areas of biophysics are welcome.

The nomination package must include:

- A one page cover letter from the nominator

- A current CV of the nominee

- Two supporting letters from arms-length biophysicists different from the nominator

Award winners are recognized at the Annual meeting of the Biophysical Society of Canada.
