The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the speakers for the Future of Biophysics Burroughs Wellcome Fund Symposium. Now in its seventh year and supported by supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, the Symposium highlights exciting research by young investigators at the interface of the physical and life sciences. The Symposium will take place on Monday, February 29, 2016, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California as part of the Biophysical Society's 60th Annual Meeting.
The 2016 speakers and their talk titles for the Symposium are:
Isabelle Baconguis, Vollum Institute, Oregon Health & Science University, MECHANISM OF GATING AND ION SELECTIVITY IN ASIC/ENAC/DEG CHANNELS;
Axel Innis, INSERM U869, France, NASCENT AND ANTIMICROBIAL PEPTIDES THAT TARGET THE RIBOSOMAL EXIT TUNNEL TO BLOCK PROTEIN SYNTHESIS IN BACTERIA;
David Kast, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, COMBINATORIAL REGULATION OF BAR DOMAIN PROTEINS AT THE INTERFACE BETWEEN THE CYTOSKELETON AND MEMBRANES; and
Kimberly Stroka, University of Maryland, ENGINEERING BIOMIMETIC MATRICES TO UNDERSTAND BRAIN/TUMOR INTERACTIONS DURING METASTASIS.
Burroughs Wellcome Fund, a private foundation in Research Triangle Park, supports researchers conducting interdisciplinary work between biology and physics.
The Biophysical Society, founded in 1958, is a professional, scientific society established to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. The Biophysical Society's Annual Meeting is the world's largest meeting of biophysicists–over 6,000 attendees are expected. Over 3500 scientific abstracts have already been submitted for presentation at this event.
