A Nobel for One of Our Own

Michael Levitt, professor of structural biology at Stanford University, has received the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry in recognition of his pioneering work in computational biology.


“This is wonderful for computational biology and a victory for physics-based simulation,” said Scott Delp, PhD, professor of bioengineering, mechanical engineering and orthopaedic surgery at Stanford and co-PI for Simbios, the National Center for Physics Based Simulation of Biological Structures, of which Levitt is a part.
