EMS Announces Recipients of 2020 JEOL-EM Awards

Winners to present talks at the virtual European Microscopy Society General Assembly in August.

The European Microscopy Society is pleased to announce the names of this year's JEOL-EM Award winners.

The Physical/Materials Sciences and Optics award, goes to Dr. Sara Bals, EMAT-University of Antwerp, Belgium

Awarded for her outstanding achievements in the field of 3D electron tomography. By combining state-of-the-art electron microscopy with advanced reconstruction algorithms, Sara Bals has significantly contributed to development and implementation of this method which today enables determination of the positions and chemical nature of atoms in individual nanoparticles. The research of Sara Bals is highly innovative and widely recognized by the EM scientific community.

The Life Sciences award goes to  Dr. Emmanuel Beaurepaire, Laboratory for optics and biosciences CNRS-INSERM-Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France.

Awarded for his outstanding achievements in  the fields of developmental biology and neurobiology by development of novel, cutting-edge light microscopy techniques. Notably, he pushed forward methods of deep-tissue imaging, with important application potential for insights into developing small model systems and for brain imaging, using advanced techniques such as multicolor two-photon excitation, third-harmonic generation imaging, adaptive optics, pulse shaping, etc. 

Congratulations to both winners!

Details of how to view the talks given by the winners will be released by the EMS in the coming weeks.
