Town Hall for Community Input on the National Academies Decadal Survey of Biological Physics
Sunday, February 16, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Moderators

Chris Jones, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Steven Moss, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
 

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is undertaking a decadal survey of biophysics to look at how the approaches and tools of physics can help to answer important questions about living systems. A committee of experts will evaluate the current state of the field, identify important future research directions, and assess workforce and education needs. This study is funded by the National Science Foundation, and will serve as a guide for federal agencies and academic leadership as they make decisions regarding the future of biophysics. Community input for this study is critical—particularly given the interdisciplinary nature of the field—and this town hall will serve as an opportunity for members of the BPS community to express their thoughts directly to the committee members who are conducting the study. This town hall is open to all members of the BPS community, and we encourage your participation.
