Foundation for the National Institute of Health (FNIH) has awarded Prof. Xiaowei Zhuang the ninth annual Lurie Prize for her revolutionary work developing super-resolution microscopy and genome-scale imaging showing new spatial and functional organizations of molecules and cells. Her research lab at Harvard University pioneered both STORM and MERFISH methods of microscopy.
Each year, the FNIH recognizes outstanding achievements by a promising young scientist in biomedical research by bestowing the Lurie Prize in Biomedical Sciences, a $100,000 award. The prize is made possible by a generous gift from philanthropist Ann Lurie.
