Super Resolution Microscopy to study Molecules within a Cell (KEYNOTE)
W.E. Moerner is the Harry S. Mosher Professor of Chemistry and, by courtesy, professor of applied physics. In 2014, he won the Nobel Prize for his role in developing a microscopy technique that allows scientists to visualize living cells at the molecular level. Prior to Moerner’s work, no one had ever actually seen a single molecule. Rendering the tiny particles visible at the smallest scale opened new possibilities for drug development and disease management.
