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.
2nd General Fall Meeting
November 15th, 5:00 pm in ILSB 3147
Our second meeting this semester will be featuring talks from Dr. Zachary Gagnon and Dr. Sarah Bondos. We will also be discussing the upcoming research symposium as well as collecting membership dues. As a reminder dues for the academic year are $5 and are required to participate in the Biophysical Research Symposium.
Spring Research Symposium
April 5th, 2019 (Location TBA)
The Biophysical Research Symposium is a great opportunity for graduate students of all departments to show chase their research. This is a unique event for Texas A&M which will encourage research from all across campus to be put on display instead of focusing on one specific college or department. This symposium will feature a poster session and two oral presentation sessions. The first oral session will feature junior graduate students, giving them the rare opportunity to give a research talk early in their careers, while the second oral session will feature full research stories by senior graduate students. Finally, the event will close with a keynote from a prominent biophysicist (TBA) for all researchers to enjoy.
