For 25 years, Kamal Shukla helped shape molecular biophysics in the United States and abroad. In his role as the leader of the Molecular Biophysics Cluster in the Biological Science Directorate at the National Science Foundation, Dr. Shukla seeded and promoted the careers of an entire generation of biophysicists. His vision for the development of quantitative, theoretical and physical approaches to the study of biological systems, and his success and accomplishments, live on in the thriving community he left behind. For his contributions to biophysics he received the prestigious Distinguished Service Award from the Biophysical Society in 2015.
