BPS Student Poster Awards at EBSA 2017 The Biophysical Society (BPS) again supported the European Biophysical Societies Association (EBSA) conference, which was held in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, July 16–20, by sponsoring a student poster competition. This was the fifth EBSA meeting at which BPS sponsored this competition. The 2017 EBSA conference was held jointly with the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB). Over 80 students applied for the BPS awards. The 12 students selected, listed below, represent the breadth and diver- sity of biophysics. But, most importantly, they represent the future strength of the field. The Society is indebted to the work of the selection committee: Daumantas Matulis , chair, Mibel Aguilar , Paolo Bianchini , Tharin Blumenschein , Felix Goñi , Robin Maytum , Manuel Prieto , Catherine Royer , and Ilpo Vattulainen . The twelve winners each received a $500 travel award and a complimentary membership to the Biophysical Society.
