YIN Lecture Series_No. 4_Prof Stefan Hell

YIN Lecture No. 4 with Prof. Stefan W. Hell

Nobel Laureate for Chemistry (2014) and director of the Department of NanoBiophotonics at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen

Optical Microscopy: The Resolution Revolution

  • the limits of diffraction
  • new microscopy concepts overcoming diffraction barriers
  • the simple but powerful principles of STED microscopy (STED = Stimulated Emission Depletion)


Prof. Hell is credited with having conceived, validated and applied the first viable concept for overcoming Abbe's diffraction-limited resolution barrier in a light-focusing fluorescence microscope. For this accomplishment he has received several awards: Most recently he shared the 2014 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

YIN Lecture Series_No3_Harald zur Hausen_Poster

YIN Lecture No3 with Prof. zur Hausen

Nobel Laureate for Physiology or Medicine (2008) and emeritus Professor at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)

Meat and Milk from Dairy Cows: a Risk for Cancer and Neuro-Diseases

  • the discovery of new viruses
  • their link to colon and breast cancers, as well as with multiple sclerosis
  • the striking predominance of these diseases in regions of high red meat and cow milk consumption

Prof. Harald zur Hausen is particularly known for his work on the role of the human papillomavirus on cervical cancer, which culminated in the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine (2008). From 1983 to 2003, he had been scientific director at the DKFZ, after holding professorships at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and Freiburg.

YIN Lecture No2 with Prof. Chad Mirkin, Northwestern University

YIN Lecture No2 with Prof. Chad Mirkin

Director of the International Institute for Nanotechnology and professor at the Northwestern University

The Convergence of Nanoscience and Nanomedicine

- DNA and RNA SYNTHESIS and ENGINEERING

- NANOMATERIALS

- Applications of both in areas such as: IMMUNOTHERAPY; GENETIC AND CHEMICAL DETECTION as well as numbering; CELL MANIPULATION on surfaces

Prof. Chad Mirkin is a world leading expert in nanoscience, best-known for his discovery and development of spherical nucleic acids and the invention of dip-pen nanolithography as well as other lithographic methods.

YIN_Lecture_Series_No1_Metin_Sitti

YIN Lecture No1 with Prof. Metin Sitti

Director of the Physical Intelligence Department, Max Plank Institute for Intelligent Systems

Small-Scale Mobile Robotics

-BIO-INSPIRED MOBILE ROBOTS
Water-walking like lizards or flying like hummingbirds – mobile robots in the milli- and centimeter range copied mimic nature.

- BIO-HYBRID MICROROBOTS for drug delivery
Bacteria-driven swimming microrobots steered by bacterial sensory drive or external forces such as weak magnetic fields.

- MAGNETIC MICROROBOTS with six-degrees-of-freedom
Controlled by external magnetic fields for precision tasks of object manipulation and orientation for advanced medical, biological and micro-manufacturing applications in enclosed microfluidic systems.
