Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2014.
Director, Max Planck Institutes.
Stefan Hell received the Nobel Prize for developing super-resolved fluorescence microscopy. He is a director at the Max Planck Institutes for both Biophysical Chemistry and Medical Research.
Stefan W. Hell is a scientific member of the Max Planck Society and a director at both the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg and the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, where he currently leads the Department of NanoBiophotonics. He is an honorary professor of experimental physics at the University of Göttingen and adjunct professor of physics at the University of Heidelberg. He is a member of the board of directors of the Göttingen Laser Laboratory as well as a member of the Academy of Sciences of Göttingen and Heidelberg.
Stefan W. Hell received his diploma (1987) and doctorate (1990) in physics from the University of Heidelberg (both advised by Prof. S. Hunklinger). From 1991 to 1993 he worked at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, also in Heidelberg, and followed with stays as a senior researcher at the University of Turku, Finland, between 1993 and 1996, and as a visiting scientist at the University of Oxford, England, in 1994. In 1997 he was appointed to the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, where he has built up his current research group dedicated to sub-diffraction-resolution microscopy. In 2002, following his appointment as a director, he established the department of Nanobiophotonics. From 2003 to 2017 he also led a research group at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg.
Stefan W. Hell is credited with having conceived, validated and applied the first viable concept for breaking Abbe’s diffraction-limited resolution barrier in a light-focusing microscope. He has published more than 300 original publications and has received several awards, including the Prize of the International Commission in Optics (2000), the Carl Zeiss Research Award (2002), the "Innovation Award of the German Federal President" (2006), the Julius Springer Award for Applied Physics (2007), Leibniz Prize (2008), the Lower Saxony State Award (2008), the Otto-Hahn-Prize in Physics (2009), the Ernst Hellmut Vits Prize (2010), the Hansen Family Award (2011), the Körber European Science Prize (2011), the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Prize 2010/2011, the Meyenburg Prize, the Science Prize of the Fritz Behrens Foundation (2012) and the Carus Prize (2013) and in 2014 the Kavli Prize in Nanoscience and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
