First Annual Biophysics Colloquium

On Friday September 29th, members of the Biophysics community gathered at Union South for the first ever Biophysics Colloquium event. Senior students and a couple of recent graduates in the program presented well received talks about their projects. These talks generated quite a bit of discussion and interest amongst audience members and the award for the best student presentation was awarded to Allison Didychuk, a student in Sam Butcher's lab. After the talks, everyone moved to a poster session that all the students in the program had been invited to present at. The posters were an excellent showcase for the diversity of work being done by students in the Biophysics program and Sean Dai, a student in Lloyd Smith's lab, and Cheng-Guo Wu, a student in Yongna Xing's lab, received awards for the best student poster presentation. The Colloquium was capped off by a reception where students and faculty had a chance to socialize as a program (Thermofisher graciously provided refreshments for the reception). We look forward to continuing this tradition in years to come!
