Strategic Plan

In 2022, the Biophysical Society BPS completed a deliberate and collaborative strategic process to envision the future, define direction, and clarify priorities. The Society leads an innovative global community working at the interface of the physical and life sciences, across all levels of complexity. Our vision is to harness the full potential of biophysics to seek knowledge, improve the human condition, and preserve the planet for future generations. With the new Strategic Plan as a foundation, BPS will continue to advance scientific excellence, integrity and transparency, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and community building.

The Biophysical Society is a 501c(3) non-profit organization, as such it undergoes an audit each year.

The Society has an independent accounting firm audit its financial records each fiscal year (which runs from January 1-December 31).   The main purposes of the audit include financial transparency, compliance with accounting standards, and reporting any deficiencies in the Society‚Äôs structure, policies and procedures, as well as making recommendations to improve them if necessary.  The auditors report their findings to the Finance Committee, which in turn reports to Council. Audits are available upon request by emailing [email protected].
