The Future of Biophysics Burroughs Wellcome Fund Symposium is one of the highlights of our Annual Meeting. Four outstanding young biophysicists are selected each year from among dozens of entries and invited to present their work at the Symposium. The goal of the Symposium is to showcase our young talent in biophysics and also cutting-edge research in areas that reflect the richness and diversity of biophysics. These young colleagues and the many more who are not selected, truly represent the promising future of Biophysics.
