Nobel Laureate Eric Betzig to Speak in the James L. Waters Symposium at Pittcon 2016
Date:12/29/2015

The Pittcon Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the details of the 2016 James L. Waters Annual Symposium, “Super-resolution Microscopy.” This prestigious symposium will discuss the introduction of commercial super-resolution nanoscopy instrumentation. from its early development through commercialization and application. This session will also highlight the award of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Eric Betzig, W.E. Moerner and Stefan Hell for their pioneering efforts in the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy, which brings optical microscopy into the nanodimension that has formed the basis of super-resolution nanoscopy.

We are extremely pleased to welcome the following innovators who will be presenting at the Pittcon 2016 Waters Symposium.

Eric Betzig, Janelia Research Campus, a group leader at the Janelia Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute where his group develops novel optical imaging tools in order to open new windows into molecular, cellular, developmental, and neurobiology.

When asked to comment on his presentation, Betzig replied, "I look forward to participating in the Waters Symposium and discussing the path to commercialization for advanced imaging technologies.".

Teng-Leong Chew, Janelia Research Campus, joined joined Janelia in 2014 to serve as the Director for the Advanced Imaging Center. Here, he leads the effort in building the unique collaborative imaging center that serves as the gateway through which the wider scientific world can access Janelia’s cutting-edge microscopy capabilities.

Bo Huang, University of California, San Francisco, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at University of California, San Francisco. His has been interested in developing light microscopy methods and fluorescent probes for the investigation of genome organization, molecular complex architecture and neuron development.

Timothy Harris, Janelia Research Center, has been at Janelia since 2008, where he is a Group Leader and Director of Applied Physics, an in house group for neuroscience measurements research and development.

Alex Soell, Carl Zeiss AG, is the vice president of of marketing at Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC

This informative session will take place during Pittcon on Monday, March 7, 2016, 1:30 p.m. Details and bios of the speakers can be found at pittcon.org .

About the James L. Waters Annual Symposium
The James L. Waters Annual Symposium is a unique component of the Pittcon Technical Program. Mr. Waters, founder of Waters Associates, Inc. and president of Waters Business Systems, Inc. proposed in 1989 that the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) offer an annual symposium exploring the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of established and major significance. The objective of the symposium is to recognize researchers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early, and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and marketing organizations.
