Society Names 2019 Fellows The Biophysical Society is proud to announce its 2019 Class of Fellows. The Fellows award is given to Society members who have demonstrated sustained excellence in science and have contributed to the expansion of the field of biophysics. The 2019 Fellows will be recognized at the awards ceremony on Monday evening, March 4, during the Society’s Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Marileen Dogterom , Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, for her pi- oneering experimental work on elucidating the physical mechanisms that govern assembly and dynamics of cytoskeleton filaments, in particular microtubules.
Judith Frydman , Stanford University, USA, for her fundamental contribu- tions to deciphering the role of molecular chap- erones in protein folding, quality control, and cell regulation. Stefan Hell , Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Germany, for his pioneering develop- ment of stimulated emission depletion microscopy, radically overcoming the Abbe resolution limit and permitting to record fast movements within living cells. Zaida Luthey-Schulten , University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, for the devel- opment of ribosomal dynamics and whole cell simulations, model- ling diffusion-reaction networks andmetabolic pathways within entire cells.
Gilad Haran , Weizmann Insti- tute of Science, Israel, for his outstanding contributions to the development and applications of single- molecule methods for studying folding of single- andmulti-domain proteins. Kenneth Johnson , University of Texas, Austin, USA, for his sustained contributions to biophysics and for his impactful studies using advanced enzyme kinetics in a wide variety of systems.
