Mazdak Khajehpour receives the Michèle Auger Service Award from the Biophysical Society of Canada

July 4, 2024 — 

“Sometimes when you have too many people who are very good researchers involved in a Society, there are not enough people to actually also think about how to run a Society or how to expand a Society,” says Mazdak Khajehpour who has recently received the Michèle Auger Service Award from the Biophysical Society of Canada. Khajehpour is an associate professor in the department of chemistry who is not only an established and accomplished researcher but also an advocate for engaging students and faculty in creating a community for biophysical research in Canada. One of his contributions cited in the award is his role in organizing the first targeted Biophysical Society of Canada meeting in Winnipeg. A meeting in which people from different areas of biophysics come together and showcase their brilliant research. Join us as we talk with Khajehpour about his research, his contribution to the Biophysical Society of Canada and his advice for aspiring researchers as they join the biophysical research.
