Sackler Prizes - Past Laureates
The Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in Biophysics is a prize that has been established through the generosity of Dr. Raymond and Mrs. Beverly Sackler.
The prize is intended to encourage dedication to science, originality and excellence by rewarding outstanding scientists.
Development of microfluidic methods for biophysics and structural biology of proteins and nucleic acids
Invention, development and biophysical applications of Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM) and related methods of super resolution microscopy
Studies of the hydrophobic effect and its contribution to protein interactions and assemblies
Studies of protein interactions underlying molecular mechanisms of apoptosis (programmed cell death)
Computational studies of protein folding, structure and reactions
Experimental studies of fast processes mediating the structural dynamics of complex biomolecular system
Studies of protein folding in formation and transmission of prions
Cellular Biophysics: methodology for quantitative characterization of intracellular dynamics of cytoskeleton and focal adhesions
Physics of non-equilibrium bio-cellular systems such as molecular motors, active membranes, filaments and the cytoskeleton
Cell Biophysics: regulation of membrane dynamics by proteins and molecular mechanisms of endocytosis
Single Molecule Biophysics: development of novel tools for studying atomic-scale conformational changes in biological macromolecules
