2021 APS Fellows Nominated by DBIO

Dr. Danielle Bassett 
University of Pennsylvania
Citation: “For significant contributions to the network modeling of the human brain, including dynamical changes caused by evolution, learning, aging, and disease.

Dr. Ibrahim Cisse
Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics
Citation: “For elucidating the physical mechanisms governing RNA transcription by employing high-resolution visualization of gene expression in living mammalian cells to understand cell fate decisions.

Dr. Arpita Upadhyaya
University of Maryland
Citation: “For contributions to understanding mechanisms of biological force generation and how these forces enable immune cells to respond to the physical properties of their environment, bearing insights into the complex and biomedically crucial mechanisms of T cell and B cell activation.

Dr. Aleksandra Walczak
