Deadline for nominations: May 1 of each year.

Through its awards programs, the Biophysical Society honors its members and recognizes excellence in biophysics. The Society offers awards in seven different categories. Nominations for the awards are solicited and evaluated by the Biophysical Society Awards Committee.

The deadline for award nominations is May 1 of each year. Society members are encouraged to nominate candidates by submitting a nomination form and required materials in PDF format through the online nomination site.

Nominees may be affiliated with non-academic institutions.

All honorees are presented their awards at the Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society.

Anatrace Membrane Protein Award

The Anatrace Membrane Protein Award, funded by Anatrace Inc., was established to recognize an outstanding investigator who has made a significant contribution to the field of membrane protein research. The award is designed to promote membrane protein studies and recognize excellence in the field. This $3,000 award is distributed annually.

Avanti Award in Lipids

Avanti Polar Lipids, Incorporated has established an annual award to be given by the Biophysical Society. The award will be given to an investigator for outstanding contributions to our understanding of lipid biophysics. The winner receives an honorarium of $3,000.

Distinguished Service Award

The Distinguished Service Award, established by the Biophysical Society, honors service in the field of biophysics and contributions beyond achievements in research. The recipient receives an honorarium of $1,000.

Emily M. Gray Award

The Emily M. Gray Award is given for significant contributions to education in biophysics, contributions that may include a distinguished record of excellence in classroom instruction, in mentoring research scientists at any level, in developing novel educational methods or materials, in promoting scientific outreach efforts to the public or to youth, in generating a track record of attracting new students to thefield of biophysics, or in otherwise fostering an environment exceptionally conducive to education in biophysics. The Emily M. Gray Lecture will be the keynote presentation at the Student Symposium at the Annual Meeting. The winner receives an honorarium of $750.

Fellow of the Biophysical Society Award

This award honors the Society’s distinguished members who have demonstrated sustained scientific excellence.

Founders Award

The Founders Award, established by the Society, is given to scientists for outstanding achievement in any area of biophysics. These achievements are often reflected in the acceptance of and use by others in the field, either promptly or over a period of years. This award of $1,000 is granted annually.

Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award

This award honors the memory of Dr. Margaret Dayhoff, former President of the Biophysical Society, Professor of Biophysics at Georgetown University, and Director of Research at the National Biomedical Research Foundation. Presented each year at the Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society, the award includes an honorarium of $2,000.

The Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award is given to a woman who holds very high promise or has achieved prominence while developing the early stages of a career in biophysical research within the purview and interest of the Biophysical Society. Achievement means that the candidate has already published substantial contributions to science; promise means that the candidate shows indications of leadership in ideas, organization, or other ways manifest for her colleagues within the scientific community. A candidate who has already received university tenure by the due date on nomination is not eligible. A candidate having a PhD or equivalent degree shall be eligible until she has completed 10 years of full-time work following the degree. A candidate with a Baccalaureate degree but without a PhD shall have 12 years of eligibility. Time taken off for child-rearing will not be counted in this total.

AACR Basic Cancer Research Fellowships

The AACR Basic Cancer Research Fellowships are open to postdoctoral and clinical research fellows  working at an academic, medical, or research institution who will be in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd
year of their postdoctoral training at the start of the grant term. The research proposed for funding may be in any  area of basic cancer research.
The fellowships provide one-year grants of $50,000 to support the salary and benefits of the Fellow
while working on a mentored basic cancer research project. A partial amount of funds may be
designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project and other research expenses.
It is anticipated that multiple fellowships will be funded.
