Marileen Dogterom, Chair of the BaSyC Steering Committee, is one of seven people who will be designated as Society Fellows of the Biophysical Society. She is awarded this honor for her pioneering experimental work on elucidating the physical mechanisms that govern assembly and dynamics of cytoskeleton filaments, in particular microtubules.
This designation honors the Society’s distinguished members who have demonstrated excellence in science, contributed to the expansion of the field of biophysics, and supported the Biophysical Society throughout their careers. The Fellows will be honored at the Awards Ceremony during the
Biophysical Society’s 63rd Annual Meeting in March 2019 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Maryland.
