The 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry goes for multiscale models development

11 Oct 2013 Brussels - The Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems.

"The Nobel prize in chemistry 2013 awarded to Karplus, Levitt and Warshel is not only a recognition of the ground-breaking work of these eminent scientists, but also a recognition of how profoundly computational modelling has transformed modern research in chemistry, materials science and the life sciences. PRACE is today providing the computational resources needed for ground-breaking research in the life and materials sciences using the methodologies developed by this year’s laureates. Nevertheless, we are still at an early stage in computational materials and life sciences, and for the next scientific breakthroughs in these domains, significantly larger computational resources will be needed", stated Dr. Kenneth Ruud, Chair of the PRACE Scientific Steering Committee.

"This year's Nobel Prize for Chemistry to Professors Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel recognizes the importance of a third approach to understanding nature beyond the Theoretical and Experimental ones, i.e. that of Modelling and Computer Simulations. This has become possible and has tremendously expanded since the seventies, when the work of the Nobel Laureates started to appear, thanks also to the huge development of High Performance Computing (HPC), the performance of which has increased of around 10^10 times in the last forty years. Correspondingly the range of applications to complex systems in biology, materials, catalysis and other realistic systems has expanded and now tackles challenges unthinkable even a few years ago. Sustained efforts of projects like PRACE aiming to provide scientists with essential HPC resources will be vital to continue this field of research and allow problems like the prediction of novel material properties from scratch and the simulation not only of structures, but of biological events at molecular level to be tackled in a foreseeable future", stated Prof. Claudio Zannoni, Dipartimento di Chimica Industriale "Toso Montanari", Italy.
