Dr. Joachim Frank

Every year, In4Med strives to give its participants the best experience possible, and this year is no exception. It is with great honor that we announce the Nobel Lecture of this year, Dr. Joachim Frank. This conference will be held by video conference! He is biochemist at Columbia University who won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his role in developing a way to create high-resolution 3D images of biomolecules such as proteins, lipids, and ribosomes. He shares the award with Richard Henderson of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, and Jacques Dubochet of the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. The trio’s technique, called cryo-electron microscopy, is widely regarded as having revolutionized biological research. Make sure you save your spot for this amazing lecture!
