Jerker Widengren

Jerker Widengren (M.Sc. Engineering Physics, M.D., Ph.D.) received his Ph.D. at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, in 1996. In between periods of clinical work as a physician, he did postdoctoral work at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, in single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy with the group of Professor Claus A.M. Seidel. Since 2003, he has been a professor and chair of Experimental Biomolecular Physics at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm. His main research interests are ultrasensitive and ultrahigh resolution fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging for fundamental biomolecular studies and clinical diagnostics. Along these lines, Widengren and his research group are specifically developing STED nanoscopy towards subcellular cancer diagnostics and for fundamental membrane dynamical studies.

FyFa Forum is a seminar series held during term time at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology. More about FyFa Forum
