, fi "an: .1 Philip Tinnefeld studied chemistry in MUnster, Montpellier (France), and Heidelberg (Germany).
: ' ' g; In 2002, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Heidelberg under Prof. J. Wolfrum.

l 1 5:. ,1." After habilitation in physics at Bielefeld University and three years as associate professor
i 7 53‘ of biophysics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munich, he was appointed full professor of
_; .: ,7 biophysical chemistry at Braunschweig University of Technology in 2010.
His research is inspired by our emerging abilities to study and build matter bottom-up, starting from single molecules. He
has contributed to the breakthroughs of single-molecule superresolution microscopy by discovering the switchability
of commercially available fluorescent dyes such as Cy5 and by discovering the reducing and oxidizing system (ROXS)
which nowadays constitutes the photophysical model of antifading formulas for fluorescent dyes. He then was involved ’
in the development of three superresolution techniques including dSTORM, Blink Microscopy and DNA PAiNT. In recent
innovations, he combined optical single-molecule detection with DNA nanotechnology for self-assembled molecular f”
devices with optical readouts including energy transfer switches, calibration nanorulers, nano-adapters, optical signal
amplifiers and molecular force balances. Dr. Tinnefeld has authored more than i 10 publications and patents. He /
has received several awards including a Schloessmann Award of the Max-PIanck-Society, the Chemistry prize of the /
\ Gottlngen Academy of Science and is recipient of an ERC starting grant. /
’ :I’ 133.. Taekjip Ha earned a doctorate in physics from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to
" ‘77 joining the University of iliinois in 2000, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Lawrence Berkeley
' National Laboratory and a postdoctoral research associate in Steven Chu‘s laboratory in the
Department of Physics at Stanford University. Ha is a Gutgseil Professor of Physics and Biophysics
I and is an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is a co-director of the
M V . ““0 -‘. 0" ICU-“MU. '- ‘0!I.i"'"" '
as the Cellular Decision Making in Cancer theme leader at the Institute for Genomic Biology
_ and as the director of PhD. program in Biophysics and Quantitative Biology.
, Dr. Ho‘s research is focused on pushing the limits of single-molecule detection methods to study complex biological
' systems. His group develops state-of-the-art biophysical techniques (e.g., multicolor fluorescence, super—resolution
imaging, combined force and fluorescence spectroscopy. vesicular encapsulation, single-molecule pull-down)
and applies them to study diverse protein—nucleic acid and protein-protein complexes, and mechanical
perturbation and response of these systems both in vitro and in vivo. Ha is the author of more than 180 papers
and has received numerous awards including Outstanding Young Researcher Award, AKPA; Research innovation
' Award, Research Corporation; Searle Scholars Award; NSF CAREER Award; Fluorescence Young Investigator Award, “-
Biophysical Society; Cottrell Scholar, Research Corporation; Beckman Fellow at Center for Advanced Studies,
_ University of Illinois; Xerox Faculty Research Award, University of Illinois; Alfred P. Sloan Fellow; Beckman Fellow,
Center for Advanced Study (CA3); Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator; Fellow, American Physical
Society; Michael and Kate Barany Award for Young Investigators, Biophysical Society; University Scholar, University of
