The University of Washington announces a new postdoctoral program in interdisciplinary biophysics research for outstanding early career scientists to work at the intersection of medicine, biology and the physical sciences. The interface between physical and biological sciences is rapidly opening new frontiers in biomedical research. To advance this fertile research area in a highly effective manner, we have launched the inter-departmental Sackler Scholars Program to support postdoctoral fellows in cross-disciplinary biophysics. Laboratories across the entire University of Washington – the School of Medicine, the College of Engineering and the College of Arts & Sciences – are participating in this new initiative. The Sackler Scholars Program enables the brightest early career scientists to combine the experimental and computational expertise of multiple laboratories to promote progress in biophysics research.
Made possible by a generous gift from the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation, the UW Sackler Scholars Program in Integrative Biophysics is a component of the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Laboratory of Biomedical and Physical Sciences in honor of their sons Jonathan Sackler and Richard Sackler.
