Helmholtz Prize for Nicholas Bell (NanoDTC Alumnus c2009)

last modified Aug 02, 2016 02:03 PM
Dr Nicholas Bell along with his PhD Supervisor Prof. Ulrich Keyser has received the 2016 Helmholtz Prize for groundbreaking work on identification and quantification of proteins in complex mixtures using nanopore sensing.

The identification and quantification of proteins in complex mixtures using nanopore sensing with high specificity was published by Nicholas Bell and Ulrich Keyser in a recent article in Nature Nanotechnology. Their combination of DNA nanotechnology with nanopore based detection of single molecules allowed for the multiplexed identification of antibodies. Drs Bell and Keyser received for this ground-breaking work the Helmholtz Prize. The 'Helmholtz Preis' is awarded by the Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt and Helmholtz Fond and is one of the most important honours for research in applied metrology.
