2016 World Congress on In Vitro Biology Keynote Speaker

In This Issue – 50.1 President’s Report 2016 World Congress Update Keynote Speaker 2016-2018 Election Results Journal Highlights Member Profile Membership Matters Member News New Members The Society of In Vitro Biology is very pleased to announce that Dr. William E. Moerner, Ph.D., will deliver the keynote address titled “Seeing Single Molecules, from Early Spectroscopy in Solids, to Super-resolution Microscopy, to 3D Dynamics of Biomolecules in Cells” at the opening ceremony of the 2016 World Congress on In Vitro Biology in San Diego, CA. Dr. Moerner is a Harry S. Mosher Professor in Chemistry at Stanford University and Nobel Laureate.  He received his B.S., A.B., B.S. in 1975 from the Washington University, and M.S. 1978, and Ph.D. 1982 from Cornell University.  He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his research including a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry in 2014.  He was instrumental in creating a method in which fluorescence from individual molecules is steered by light, and combining these images in which different molecules are activated allowed for exceptionally high resolution imaging at the level of a single molecule, thus giving birth to the field of ‘nanoscopy’.  This major breakthrough of optically characterizing individual molecules, allows for many high resolution microscopy applications such as biomolecular studies of single proteins, enzymes, etc… within specific microenvironments of a living cell. A single molecule can also be viewed as a probe of...
