Nobel laureate Arieh Warshel to speak Monday at UCLA

Arieh Warshel, who won the 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry for the "development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems," will present a seminar at UCLA on Monday, April 21. The seminar is titled, appropriately enough, "Multiscale Modeling of Complex Biological Systems and Processes." 
Warshel laid the foundation for the powerful computer programs that are used to understand and predict chemical processes. In honoring him, the Nobel committee observed that "computer models mirroring real life have become crucial for most advances made in chemistry today." 
A distinguished professor of chemistry at USC, Warshel is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He earned his doctorate from the Weizmann Institute in Israel.
