Biophysics: Changing Our World

Do you know a biophysics discovery that changed the world for the better? That led to a new technology, new diagnostic tool, medical application, or new industry?

The Biophysical Society Public Affairs Committee invites you to submit a one-minute video or a one-page PDF that describes one such biophysics innovation and its impact. Up to five prizes of $1000 each will be awarded for the submissions that best describe how a biophysics-inspired innovation changed the world for the better.

These stories are critical in building public and Congressional support for basic research by demonstrating how it impacts individuals and the economy.
