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 invited individuals to submit a one-minute video describing one such biophysics innovation and its impact. 
The Committee is particularly interested in learning about innovations that are not widely known and those that have taken place in the recent past. Up to three prizes of $1000 each will be awarded for the submissions that best describe how a biophysics-inspired innovation changed the world for the better, and the winning entry will have the opportunity to have their video professionally produced.

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