Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry, emeritus at Harvard University will be providing a keynote address this year at Science in the Age of Experience. His research team focuses on understanding the electronic structure, geometry, and dynamics of molecules of chemical and biological interest. After three decades of work their research has produced the groundbreaking molecular modeling engine CHARMM. This engine, which is backed by the modeling algorithms that led to his winning the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with collaborators Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel, has fundamentally transformed how molecular interactions are understood by combining the “best of both worlds [in classical and quantum mechanics]” (2013 Nobel Prize Press Release). His work in pioneering in silico methodologies has made modeling and simulation a central part of modern chemistry and structural biology research.
