The prize has been awarded “for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems”.  These distinguished Professors pioneered the methods that are used in our group today, such as molecular dynamics simulations of proteins and QM/MM methods for the mechanistic study of enzymes. As mentioned in the press release, these methods “have become crucial for most advances made in chemistry today”.
