Biosketch Stefan W. Hell

Stefan W. Hell studied physics at the University of Heidelberg, completing with a diploma in 1987 and a doctoral degree in 1990. During his postgraduate work he became interested in finding out whether it is possible to fundamentally overcome the resolution limits of light microscopy, which became the focus of his activity in the following years. From 1991 to 1993 he stayed in Heidelberg to work at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory. In 1993 he moved to Finland where he continued his research at the University of Turku until 1996, interrupted by brief stints to Oxford as a visiting scientist. In 1997 he returned to Germany, taking a position as a junior research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. Following his appointment as a director in 2002, he set up the department of NanoBiophotonics at the Göttingen Max Planck Institute. Since 2003 he has also led the Optical Nanoscopy division at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Hell is also associated with the physics faculties of both Heidelberg and Göttingen University.
