Hell and William E. Moerner "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy". For a long time optical microscopy was held back by a presumed limitation: that it would never obtain a better resolution than half the wavelength of light. Helped by fluorescent molecules the Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2014 ingeniously circumvented this limitation. Their ground-breaking work has brought optical microscopy into the nanodimension. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/nobel-prize-in-chemistry-for-achievements-in-super-resolution-microscopy/ Thu, 09 Oct 2014 13:25:00 +0000 Nobel Media AB 2014 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/11038 Confocal Microscopy Live-Cell Imaging Nobel Prize 2013 in Physiology or Medicine for Discoveries of the Machinery Regulating Vesicle Traffic On October 7th 2013, The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has decided to award The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2012 jointly to James E.

Their findings have revolutionised our understanding of how cells and organisms develop. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/nobel-prize-2012-in-physiology-or-medicine-for-stem-cell-research/ Tue, 09 Oct 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Nobel Media AB 2012 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5256 Fluorescence Microscopy Fluorescent Proteins - From the Beginnings to the Nobel Prize Fluorescent proteins are the fundament of recent fluorescence microscopy and its modern applications. Their discovery and consequent development was one of the most exciting innovations for life sciences in the last century and the starting point of the deciphering of numberless natural phenomena. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/fluorescent-proteins-from-the-beginnings-to-the-nobel-prize/ Thu, 16 Feb 2012 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Christoph Greb
