Thanks to the support of the European Physics Letters Journal, we were able to award also this year poster awards, consisting of a certifcate and 250 Euro award money each, to young researchers of the Biological Physics Divison for their poster presentations! The awards were presented during the general assembly by the speaker oft the division Helmut Grubmüller. The participants of the poster sessions voted for their favourites and the winners are:
Delf Kah, Department of Physics, Biophysics Group, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen Nuremberg for his poster on "Contractile performance of cardiac tissues under synchronized mechanical and electrical stimulation"
Fabian Knoch, Condensed Matter Theory Group, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz for his poster on "Bridging the gap between atomistic simulations and experimental investigations of mechanical unfolding"
Christine Linne, Dynamics of Fluid and Biological Interfaces Group, Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen for her poster on "Light-activated flagella dynamics of Chlamydomonas in contact with a surface"
Manuela Denz, Institute for X-Ray Physics, Georg August University Göttingen for her poster on "A time-resolved study of intermediate filament assembly"
