For the third year, Biophysical Journal will host a symposium to highlight the excellent science published in the journal. The speakers, including the Paper of the Year-Early Career Investigator Award recipient, are authors published in the past year who represent a subset of the high quality research in the journal. The Paper of the Year-Early Career Investigator Award recognizes an early career researcher who has published an outstanding paper in the journal. Plan to attend this session to hear about the exciting work of these leaders in biophysics.
