UCLA Chem & Biochem is proud to sponsor lectures by each of the three 2014 Chemistry Nobel Laureates: Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell & William Moerner. 

The Nobel Prize, the most prestigious of all international awards, is bestowed annually in a number of categories by Swedish and Norwegian committees in recognition of academic, cultural and/or scientific advances. It was awarded jointly to Drs. Betzig, Hell, and Moerner on October 8, 2014, “for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy”.  

On Monday, April 6, 2015 at 4:00 pm, the first lecture titled “The Story of Single Molecules, from Early Spectroscopy in Solids, to Super-Resolution Nanoscopy in Cells” will be presented by Professor William E. Moerner, Stanford University’s Harry S. Mosher Professor of Chemistry, at the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) auditorium.
