The Nobel prize in Chemistry for 2013 was awarded to three computer scientists. They created foundations of methods for molecular modeling and molecular dynamics to study both small molecules and large systems composed of DNA and proteins enabling docking of ligands to molecular targets for drug design. They developed a concept of force-field and also combined these methods with quantum chemistry to simulate enzymatic reactions.
Prof. Krzysztof Palczewski from Case Western Reserve University,
Cleveland, USA, obtained the FNP prize ("Polish Nobel") for
determination of structure of rhodopsin and elucidation of mechanism
of vision. He collaborates with our lab since the creation of the lab
