In August 2014 ESRIC was very honoured to welcome Eric Betzig, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014 for his outstanding work on the development of super-resolution techniques alongside Stefan Hell and William Moerner. Dr Betzig taught our summer school delegates on his visit and also gave the ESRIC Summer Lecture to a full house at the Royal College of Physician's in Edinburgh. This event was open to the general public and was booked out within 24 hours of registration opening, Dr Betzig gave an insightful and entertaining lecture to researchers and the general public alike. More information about this can be found at  on our News page.
