Julie Biteen will recieve the 2017 Biophysical Society's Margaret Oakley Dayhoff Award for her creative work in real-time, nanometer-scale measurements of subcellular motion in bacteria. 

The award honors the memory of Margaret Oakley Dayhoff, former president of the Biophysical Society, and is given to a woman who holds very high promise or has achieved prominence while developing the early stages of a career in biophysical research within the purview and interest of the Biophysical Society.

Sarah Veatch was a 2014 recipient of the same award for her substantial contributions to the field of membrane physical chemistry as it translates into biological systems.
