Brussels, 8 October 2014
The Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2014 was today awarded jointly to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy". While Professors Betzig and Moerner work in the US, Professor Hell is German and works at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen and the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg.
Throughout his career, Prof S. Hell has received support from the EU's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). He was himself an MSCA fellow at the University of Turku in 1996-1997, and then coordinator for three MSCA individual fellowships. On top of that, he and his colleagues participated in collaborative projects funded by the EU.
