abstract

In this plenary presentation, Eric Betzig talks about his scientific journey that led to the Nobel Prize. He made waves early in his career by helping to develop a technique known as near-field microscopy, which brought into focus structures that scientists had long considered too small to see with a light microscope. Eric Betzig is a group leader at Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) in Ashburn, VA. He recieved a BS in physics from California Institute of Technology and a PhD in applied and engineering physics from Cornell University. Betzig received the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, along with William Moerner and Stefan Hell, for their development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
