Ask Eric Anything:
A live episode of The Microscopists featuring Eric Betzig


The Microscopists is going LIVE! For a one-off and very special guest - Eric Betzig!

We already know so much about Eric, but I hope that our chat will reveal more about the man behind the many ingenious contributions to the world of microscopy, life sciences, and science in general.

While Eric is well known for receiving the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry along with Stefan Hell and William Moerner for developing super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, you might be surprised to hear that he doesn’t consider himself a chemist at all.

Join us as we talk about the challenges and excitement of building a living room microscope, moving from academia to industry and back again, and how being a house husband led to a scientific breakthrough.

As this is a live event, you’ll have the opportunity to put your own questions to Eric. Places will be limited so make sure you register now for the opportunity to ask Eric anything.
