Professor Hell received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014 “for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy,” and the Kavli Prize in nanoscience that same year for his “transformative contributions to the field of nano-optics that have broken long-held beliefs about the limitations of the resolution limits of optical microscopy and imaging.”

The discussion will be moderated by Emmy Award-winning journalist Frank Sesno, the Director of Strategic Initiatives at George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs.

Dr. Stefan Hell: Director, Max Planck Institute for Medical Research & Head, Department of Optical Nanoscopy; 2014 Kavli Prize Laureate in Nanoscience; 2014 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry.

The Kavli Prize is a partnership between The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The Kavli Foundation (United States), and The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

This event is co-hosted by the Carnegie Institution for Science with The Kavli Foundation, the Royal Embassy of Norway, and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
