Biophysical Society Bulletin | April 2022
Benefits of Hosting an In-Person BPS Networking Event: • BPS will reimburse you up to $500 for the costs associat- ed with hosting the meeting; • BPS will help you advertise the meeting (social media, emails, newsletter, etc.); • You can meet and exchange ideas with others at your institution and from neighboring communities! All current Society members are eligible to apply. Please note that your event must meet the following requirements: • The event should be no longer than one day; • It should be a stand-alone event (not part of a larger conference);
• There should be an emphasis on promotion of biophysics; • A meeting size of approximately 25 to a maximum of 100 attendees is best; • It must be advertised prominently as a BPS-sponsored event; and • If there is a speaker list, it should include graduate stu- dents and postdocs. BPS will be accepting networking event proposals for events occurring in August 2022 and beyond. The networking event submission site will be open March 15 – April 30, 2022. Applicants will be notified of the results in June . For more information about the proposal requirements, and to view past and upcoming networking events, please visit https:/www.biophysics.org/networking-events.
Editor’s Pick Biophysical Reports KHz-rate volumetric voltage imaging of the whole Zebrafish heart Leonardo Sacconi, Ludovico Silvestri, Esteban C. Rodríguez, Gary A. B. Armstrong, Francesco S. Pavone, Alvin Shrier, Gill Bub “Cell voltage is an important biophysical parameter that is challenging to measure in 3D organs such as the heart. Simultaneous parallel excitation and emission detection microscopy is a new technique that illuminates tissue with several parallel light sheets and captures data using multiple cameras.
We loaded intact zebrafish hearts with a voltage sensitive dye, allowing us to image voltage waves passing through seven planes in the tissue at very high speeds. Our 3D imaging studies revealed that under certain circumstances, electric impulses can backpropagate through specialized anatomical pathways that link the heart’s chambers to re-excite the atria.”
