Angela M. Gronenborn to Receive Biophysical Society’s 2021 Founders Award

ROCKVILLE, MD – The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce that Angela M. Gronenborn, PhD, Professor of Structural Biology at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania will receive the Society’s Founders Award in 2021. Gronenborn will be honored at the Society’s 65th Annual Meeting, being held virtually, February 22-26, 2021.

This award is given to scientists for outstanding achievement in any area of biophysics. These achievements are often reflected in the acceptance of and use by others in the field, either promptly or over a period of years. Gronenborn is being honored for her many contributions to the field of NMR protein structure determination with a particular emphasis on their functional dynamics.

“Some scientific breakthroughs are immediately recognized for their brilliance, yet others require time and perspective to appreciate their full impact on the field,” said BPS President Catherine A. Royer, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York. “The Founders Award allows us to call attention to outstanding achievements in biophysics that are now accepted and used by others, whether that acceptance was immediate or over a period of years. Angela was among a few scientists who recognized early on the power of NMR for analysis of biomolecular systems. She played an integral role in transforming NMR into the powerful method that it is today. We are excited to celebrate her contributions.”
