Congratulations to Jacques Dubochet on his Nobel Prize!


Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson are awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 for their development of an effective method for generating three-dimensional images of the molecules of life. Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers can now freeze biomolecules midmovement and portray them at atomic resolution. This technology has taken biochemistry into a new era.

The CIG is very proud of the Ombudsman of its post-doctoral fellows and would like to warmly congratulate Jacques Dubochet on his Nobel Prize.

A Facebook live with J. Dubochet is organised by the UNIL on Oct. 6, 2017 at 17:00:
