Dan Herschlag to Receive Biophysical Society’s 2020 Founders Award

ROCKVILLE, MD – The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce that Dan Herschlag, PhD, Professor of Biochemistry at Stanford University, USA will receive the Society’s Founders Award in 2020. He will be honored at the Society’s 64th Annual Meeting at the San Diego Convention Center in California, February 15-19, 2020.

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. Herschlag is being honored for his fundamental contributions to RNA folding and enzymology.

“Some scientific breakthroughs are immediately recognized for their brilliance, yet others require time and perspective to appreciate their full impact on the field,” BPS President Dave Piston, Washington University in St. Louis. “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. Dan’s work on RNA folding and enzymology has had a ripple effect on the field, leaving a lasting impact on the entire breadth of molecular biophysics. We are excited to celebrate his contributions.”
