Award for outstanding contributions to soft matter and biophysics

Congratulations to Dr Davide Michieletto who has been awarded the British Biophysical Society Louise Jonson Early Career Award.

The British Biophysical Society (BBS) Louise Johnson Early Career Award is made every two years to an early career researcher in recognition of outstanding contributions in the fields of biophysics or biophysical methods.

In recognition of this award, Dr Michieletto will present a plenary lecture and receive a commemorative medal at the Biennial BBS Meeting in September 2024 in Swansea. 

Dr Michieletto’s background is in polymer and statistical physics and he has track record in using both simulations and experiments. His current main line of research is inspired by how the genome in our cells is mechanically and topologically manipulated by proteins, and is focused on discovering new DNA-based soft materials and complex fluids that can change topology in time.

The BBS award was given in recognition of his contributions at the interface of soft matter and biophysics.
