Dr. Hell´s Seminar at the Scientific Pole, 21th November 2013, “Far-field optical nanoscopy: principles and recent advancements”.

Dr. Stefan W. Hell, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen – Germany, received today the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries in the developing of super-resolution optical microscopy.

Dr. Hell visited our Institute in November last year as part of his participation as keynote speaker at the workshop “Advances of Super-resolution Optical Microscopy“, held in CIBION, one of the institutes that are part of the Scientific and Technology Pole.

Currently, Dr. Damian Refojo, IBioBA Researcher, and Dr. Hell participate in a research project (PICT ANPCyT-Max Planck) with Dr. Fernando Stefani, CIBION Researcher and Max Planck Partner Group of Dr. Hell, aimed to study the localization of synaptic proteins by superresolution microscopy techniques.
