Distinguished Service Award Renamed in Honor of Rosalba Kampman In recognition of her outstanding service as the Biophysical Society’s Executive Officer from 1998 through 2018, the Distinguished Service Award has been renamed the Rosalba Kampman Distinguished Service Award. The award, which was initiated in 1997, just prior to the beginning of Kampman’s tenure with the Society, honors service in the field of biophysics and contributions beyond achievements in research, and is presented biennially. Kampman’s dedication and contributions to BPS made the Society flourish and grow significantly, and BPS Council decided unanimously to rename this award in her honor. Kampman shares the honor with the devoted volunteers of BPS, saying “I truly believe that my efforts during the past 20 years with the Biophysical Society would have achieved nothing were it not for the tireless and generous work of the many members who volunteered their time on committees, councils, boards, Society publications, and meetings. I was always in awe of how much of their hearts they put into those efforts. It is their service that has made the Society and the field of biophysics thrive and grow. I am humbled and very honored to have my name associated with the Distinguished Service Award.” The Rosalba Kampman Distinguished Service Award will be presented to the selected awardee at the BPS 2020 Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, on February 17.
