Biophysical Society names 2007 award recipients

Bethesda, MD -- The Biophysical Society is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2007 Society awards. The twelve recipients will receive their awards at the Biophysical Society's 51st Annual Meeting on Monday March 5, 2007 at the Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The awardees are:

Klaus Gawrisch, National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health, will receive the Avanti Award in Lipids for his outstanding contributions to our understanding of lipid biophysics through groundbreaking work in the development of NMR techniques for characterization of lipid structure and dynamics, and for his seminal and influential contributions to the modern picture of highly unsaturated lipids. Dr. Gawrisch works as a mentor and collaborator for many junior investigators;

Ken A. Dill, University of California, San Francisco, will receive the Distinguished Service Award; for his long and continuous work on behalf of the Biophysical Society, and biophysics in general, that has ranged from service as president of the Society to his recent efforts as chair of the Public Affairs Committee;

John Steven Olson, Rice University, will receive the Emily M. Gray Award for his outstanding contributions to education in biophysics. He has had significant impact on many undergraduate and graduate students through teaching, mentoring, organizing programs between universities to promote biophysics training, and his ability to engage both scientists and non-scientists through his lectures;

Clara Franzini-Armstrong, University of Pennsylvania, will receive the Founders Award for her outstanding achievement in Biophysics by significantly contributing to our understanding of the excitation-coupling mechanism of striated muscles through her ultrastructural analyses of muscle, and the correlation of the structure with the physiological EC coupling mechanism;

Taekjip Ha, University of Illinois, will receive the
