In 2013 the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded jointly to three scientists who laid the foundations of computational biomolecular research – Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel. The prize was awarded “for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems.”

In this interview, we speak with one of them, Professor Michael Levitt from Standford University about the past, present and future of the field of biomolecular modelling and simulations.
