There are two kinds of paper awards given to the authors of the original articles, which have been published from Biophysics and Physicobiology (BPPB): Award for Outstanding BPPB Paper and BPPB Editors’ Choice Award.

The former is given by the Biophysical Society of Japan (BSJ) to the authors, who contributed to the advancement of biophysics by their groundbreaking article, published between 2015 and 2020. This year, the committee organized in the BSJ for the 11th Award for Outstanding BPPB paper has selected Drs. Akira Kitamura and Masataka Kinjo in Hokkaido University, for their article “Determination of diffusion coefficients in live cells using fluorescence recovery after photobleaching with wide-field fluorescence microscopy” Biophys. Physicobiol. 15, 1–7 (2018) [1]. At the 60th Annual Meeting of the BSJ held in September 2022, the awardee, Dr. Akira Kitamura, was commended, and he made the Award Seminar.

The latter one, the 9th BPPB Editors’ Choice Award, is given by the BSJ to the authors of the articles in the BPPB, who made scientifically unique contributions to biophysics, published in 2021. This year, the awardees are the following four authors. Dr. Ryo Yoshizawa in RIKEN [2], Dr. Takashi Yoshidome in Tohoku Univ. [3], Dr. Masayuki Oda in Kyoto Prefectural Univ.
