Broadening Participation in DBIO/Canvassing

By Margaret S Cheung posted 04-27-2022 00:09


Please submit suggestions for members of the DBIO community for APS Fellow, Delbruck Prize and DBIO Leadership positions. This does NOT replace an official Nomination, but is a parallel process to identify strong candidates and, in some cases, actively solicit nomination packages. We particularly are interested in candidates who will broaden participation in DBIO. Below please find the links to the official nomination site.

This link will remain active throughout the year. For this current year, suggestions would be most useful if received by the following dates:

Delbruck Prize: May 10, 2022 (

APS Fellow: May 10, 2022(

DBIO Early Career Award: May 10, 2022 (

DBIO Leadership Positions: September 1, 2022 (We'll be holding elections for Member-at-Large, Early Career and Chair Line)

Please submit the names using the link to this google form.

Illustrative examples of what we mean by broadening representation: broaden the fields of Biological Physics, including both theoretical and experimental approaches; Candidate is from a racial/ethnic group historically marginalized in STEM, a Person of Color, female and/or gender minority; Candidate's current location of employment increases geographic diversity of DBIO membership - both within the U.S.A. or international; Candidate's place of employment diversifies institutional representation - academic (R1, primarily undergraduate, private, public), national lab or industry.

The data collected in this form will be used solely for informal data collection and kept confidential within the DBIO Chair Line (Chair Elect, Vice Chair, Chair, Past Chair). It will not be used for any other purposes. If you have any questions, please contact DBIO Chair, Margaret Cheung.
