Yale E. Goldman to Receive the 2020 Kazuhiko Kinosita Award in Single Molecule Biophysics

ROCKVILLE, MD – The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce that Yale E. Goldman, MD, PhD, Professor in the Department of Physiology and the Pennsylvania Muscle Institute, University of Pennsylvania, USA will receive the 2020 Kazuhiko Kinosita Award in Single Molecule Biophysics. Goldman will be honored at the Society’s 64th Annual Meeting at the San Diego Convention California, February 15-19.

The Award, founded in 2016, recognizes outstanding researchers for their exceptional contributions in advancing the field of single molecule biophysics. Goldman is being recognized for his pioneering work in measuring and understanding orientations, rotations, and dynamics of motor proteins by developing and using single molecule imaging approaches.

“This award honors the legacy of Professor Kazuhiko Kinosita, whose cross-disciplinary approaches, single-molecule studies, and especially his spirit of curiosity, have inspired generations of biophysicists” said BPS President Dave Piston, Washington University in St. Louis. “Yale’s pioneering work in developing and using single molecule imaging approaches to better understand motor proteins honors this legacy, and has inspired further growth in the field of single-molecule biophysics. We are excited to celebrate this work and its importance in this field.”

The Kazuhiko Kinosita Award in Single-Molecule Biophysics recognizes outstanding researchers for their exceptional contributions in advancing the field of single-molecule biophysics. This award honors the life and work of Professor Kazuhiko Kinosita, Jr., who helped to establish the field. The award is intended to encourage investigators, to promote further developments in single-molecule biophysics, to advance the type of cross-disciplinary research that is characteristic of this field, and to elevate an appreciation of single-molecule studies among scientists in general.
