Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Harvard University, USA

Illuminating biology at the nanoscale with single-molecule and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy
Date: Tuesday, 9 September 2014, 11:30–12:30
Room: Congress Hall

Xiaowei Zhuang got her Ph.D in physics at the University of California, Berkeley in 1996. She was a Chodorow postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford University (1997–2001). Since 2001 she has worked at the Harvard University, Department of Physics, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, f irst as the assistant professor (2001–2005), then associate professor (2005), investigator (2005–) and professor (2006–). She has been awarded numerous honors, e.g. Technology Review Worlds Top 100 Young Innovator Award (2004), The Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in Biophysics (2011) and a member of the National Academy of Sciences (2012) and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2013). She is a member of editorial boards, e.g. Cell, and a member of different scientif ic advisory boards.
