Decadal Assessment on Biological Physics: The Physics of Living Systems

 

In summer 2019 the National Academies will appoint a committee to carry out the first decadal survey on biological physics. The survey aims to help federal agencies, policymakers, and academic leadership understand the importance of biophysics research and make informed decisions about funding, workforce, and research directions. This study is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
