Stefan Hell is the Director of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and head of the Department of Nanobiophotonics. Hell was the first to conceive of and develop a fluorescent microscope with a resolution of nanometers (a fraction of the wavelength of light)- a feat previously thought to be impossible. For his work, he was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
