Prof. Xiaowei Zhuang has received the 2015 National Academy of Science Award in Molecular Biology.

The Academy recognized Prof. Zhuang "for the development of a high-resolution microscopy method (STORM) that allows molecular-scale resolution, by bypassing the ‘diffraction limit’ that has long shackled light microscopy. In addition, she developed the photo-switchable fluorescent dyes that have made this method a powerful and critical tool in many areas of biological research and neuroscience".
