Professor Tim de Zeeuw, Leiden Observatory & Former Director General at ESO



The talk will briefly outline the development of optical integral-field spectroscopy and its application to the study of galaxies. It will highlight some of the key achievements and include initial results for the galaxies in the core of the nearby Fornax cluster of galaxies obtained with the transformational MUSE instrument on the Very Large Telescope as part of the F3D project.
