Eva Nogales Named a 2020 Biophysical Society Fellow

Eva Nogales, MCB Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics & Structural Biology and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, has been named a 2020 Biophysical Society Fellow.

The Biophysical Society is an international scientific society created to promote the development and dissemination of biophysics knowledge through meetings, publications, community outreach, and career placement. 

Nogales is recognized for her demonstrated excellence in science and contributions to the success and vitality of the biophysics field. Also, for her efforts to push cryo-EM barriers and the resulting structural insights into the central dogma machinery and cytoskeleton interactions and dynamics in cell division, and for her structural studies of microtubules and associated proteins, and of machineries regulating gene expression. 

The awardees will be formally honored at the 2020 Annual Biophysical Society Meeting to be held in San Diego February 15–19.
