The Biophysical Society sponsors graduate student poster awards at the National Organization of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) Annual Conference. Graduate students who plan to attend the NOBCChE conference are encouraged to submit posters and compete for prizes.

Applicable posters will have a biological element to their research. The scientists who judge the posters are Society members from academic institutions, societies, and industry. The Society’s Minority Affairs Committee (MAC) sponsors these awards.
