Poster Awards

The Biophysical Society is proud to continue its tradition of sponsoring a student poster competition at the EBSA meeting. All interested students presenting their research at EBSA 2015 will be evaluated during the poster sessions by members of the selection committee. Twelve $500 awards will be presented.

FEBS Journal publishes papers in all areas within the Molecular, Cellular and Biochemical Sciences. It supports young scientists with FEBS Journal Poster Prizes, which are awarded by journal Editors at key conferences throughout the year.

BPEX is a broad, inclusive, rapid review journal devoted to publishing new research in all areas of biomedical engineering, biophysics and medical physics. The journal has a special emphasis on interdisciplinary work between these fields.
