Arieh Warshel, recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, will present the Chemistry Department Franklin Lecture:

“How to Model the Action of Complex Biological Systems on a Molecular Level”

Wednesday, October 14
4:00 p.m.
180 Dell Butcher Hall

Abstract
Despite the enormous advances in structural studies of biological systems we are frequently left without a clear structure function correlation and cannot fully describe how different systems actually work. This introduces a major challenge for computer modeling approaches that are aimed at a realistic simulation of biological functions. The unresolved questions range from the elucidation of the basis for enzyme action to the understanding of the directional motion of complex molecular motors.
