Biophysical Society Bulletin | January 2022
First-Time Attendee Drop By Saturday, February 19, 5:00 pm –6:00 pm
organelles are supramolecular assemblies containing RNA and/or proteins with intrinsically disordered regions. LLPS allows the cell to organize complex biochemical processes in space and plays crucial roles in regulating gene expression, the stress response, and some signal transduction pathways. Speakers Rohit Pappu , Washington University, will introduce Biophysical Principles of Phase Separation Alexsandra Zidovska , New York University, will discuss Bio- physical Studies of Phase Separation Gary Karpen , University of California, Berkeley, will present Biological Examples of Phase Separation in Cells Exhibitor Presentations* Exhibitor presentations will be held throughout the Annual Meeting by companies that have exciting products, tools, and technologies to showcase. All meeting attendees are wel- come at these presentations.
First time attending a Biophysical Society (BPS) Annual Meet- ing? Wondering what to do first or how to get the most out of your time? Stop by the First-Time Attendee event on Saturday evening during the Opening Mixer to learn how to navigate the meeting. Committee members along with Society staff will be on hand to answer your questions and help you gain the most from your time at the BPS 2022 Annual Meeting.

Biophysics 101: Liquid-Liquid Phase Separation: Biophysical Fundamentals to Cellular Function Monday, February 21, 1:30 pm –3:00 pm This session will provide an introduction to liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS), a field that is enjoying an explosion of interest due to its ubiquitous nature. This widespread cellular mechanism leads to formation of membrane-less organelles such as the nucleolus, stress granules, and P-bodies. These
