The science that gave me a Nobel prize and the science that didn’t


– a public lecture by Professor Jacques Dubochet, winner of the 2017 Nobel prize in chemistry.


In Aula Nordica, on Wednesday December 13 at 14:00, Jacques Dubochet will hold a free lecture titled The science that gave me a Nobel prize and the science that didn’t.

Jacques Dubochet, who is based at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, will be awarded the Nobel prize on December 10 together with Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson, for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.

Umeå University and the Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM) has one of two cryo-electron microscopes in Sweden. Hosts for the visit are Linda Sandblad, Director of UCEM and researcher at UCMR, MIMS and the Department of Microbiology, and Lars-Anders Carlson, researcher at WCMM and the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics.
