In addition to the impressive photographs, the "Nobel Heroes" exhibition offers an exciting supporting program designed in collaboration with cultural initiatives of TUM. This series of events makes it possible not only to get to know the faces of the laureates, but also to immerse oneself in the inspiring stories and discoveries that led to these groundbreaking awards – like the story of Joachim Frank, a German-American biophysicist who received his doctorate at TUM and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 together with Jacques Dubochet and Richard Henderson.
