Nobel Lecture: Cryo-electron microscopy: past, present, and future prospects


Joachim Frank, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2017, will visit the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology on 12 June 2018 to give a lecture to employees, students and general public.

Joachim Frank is one of the researchers that developed cryo-electron microscopy; a revolutionising method that makes it possible to depict biomolecules. Researchers can now freeze biomolecules mid-movement and visualise processes they have never previously seen. Joachim Frank's special contribution is that he merged the blurry two-dimensional images from the microscope to one single clear three-dimensional visualisation of biological entities, such as proteins. The research is central for both the basic understanding of life's chemistry and for the development of pharmaceuticals.

Joachim Frank is a professor at Columbia University, New York, USA. He shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Jaques Dubochet, University of Geneva, and Richard Henderson, Cambridge University.
