The Biophysical Society congratulates the seven 2017 Society Fellows. The award recognizes Society members who have demonstrated sustained excellence in science and have contributed to the expansion of the field of biophysics. The awards will be presented on Monday, February 13, 2017, during the Awards Ceremony at the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting in New Orleans. The Fellows are:

Jonathon Howard , Yale University, for his seminal contributions to single-molecule and cellular biophysical analysis of the cytoskeleton.

Michael Levitt , Stanford University, for his development of computer simulations that combine classical physics and quantum physics to unveil chemical processes. Jane S. Richardson , Duke University, for her tremendous contributions to advancing our collective knowledge of the beauty and complexity of protein struc- ture. Petra Schwille , Max Planck Institute, for the development of novel biophysical methodology and well controlled cell-free re- constitution assays to characterize fundamental biological processes and functions with ultimate precision.

Lewis E. Kay , University of Toronto, for illuminating the dynamic properties of proteins important for folding, aggrega- tion, and function.

Brian Kobilka , Stanford University, for his groundbreak- ing work leading to the understanding of the structure and function of G-protein– coupled receptors.
