Katrin Willig, Dr.


Katrin studied physics in Würzburg before joining the group of Stefan W. Hell at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen in 2002 for her PhD thesis. Since then, she has been working with STED microscopy focusing on live-cell STED microscopy by using fluorescent proteins and advancing the technique to become in vivo compatible. In collaboration, Katrin contributed to many of the first studies applying STED microscopy to biology. Recently she started her own junior research group at the CNMPB, a Cluster of Excellence and DFG Research Center.

  • Sharp Live Images from the Mouse Brain

    To explore the most intricate structures of the brain in order to decipher how it functions – Stefan Hell’s team of researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen has made a significant step closer to this goal. Using the STED microscopy developed by Hell, the scientists have, for the first time, managed to record detailed live images inside the brain of a living mouse.

  • Abstracts of the First European Super-Resolution User-Club Meeting

    The first European Super-resolution User-Club meeting took place from October 27 to 29 in Göttingen, Germany. Prof. Stefan Hell, the inventor of the STED technology, has hosted this first meeting. The user club is aimed at pioneering researchers from the European scientific community, who are early adopters and developers of super-resolution techniques.
