2015 Biophysical Society Meeting, Baltimore, Maryland. This year, Klaus Schulten from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign gave the prestigious National Lecture. The National Lecturer is the highest award given each year by the Biophysical Society. During the lecture that he delivered on Monday evening at the annual meeting in Baltimore, Klaus Schulten brought theoretical and computational biophysics to the forefront of the field through cogent illustrations. Reminiscing a conversation with an experimentalist, Klaus emphasized that one of the key advantages of molecular simulations is that “it doesn’t only agree with the experiment, it tells you more”. Before a riveted audience, he showed true discoveries made with what he refers to a computational microscope in such complex biological objects as the capsid of the human immunodeficiency virus and a bacterial chromatophore, an organelle that transforms light energy into chemical energy.
