We are a student chapter of the nationally recognized Biophysical Society (BPS). The BPS is a professional society formed on the common interest of biophysical research. The goal of our chapter is to promote cross-talk and collaboration of the departments and labs on campus that are participating in biophysical research. Some of the benefits of membership include networking, access to meetings and materials of the national society as well as participation in our annual biophysical research symposium.
We host two meetings a semester which include biophysics related faculty talks as well as student research talks. These meetings provide a venue to learn more about the biophysical research going on at Texas A&M. Every spring we also hold a biophysical research symposium and Biophysics Week.
Biochemistry and Biophysics Research and Technologies Symposium
This event was held in the ILSB Atrium on March 29th from 1-7pm. Thanks to the planning committee this event was a great success. To view prize winners and see pictures from the event visit the Symposium’s home page here.
