Professor Michael Levitt, winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, gave a lecture at an academic forum for postgraduates at Shanghai Jiao Tong University on Nov 6.

In his lecture, Levitt described the latest research findings in modern biology. He also gave an overview of the development of computational structural biology, saying it would be used in simulating biological functional motion and would play a larger role in the research and production of antibodies.

Levitt is an academician of the National Academy of Sciences, academician of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and member of the Royal Society. He encouraged young people to be passionate, kind, tough, and creative, which in his view are all valuable qualities in scientific research.

During the Q&A section, the audience asked about the prospects and meaning of the algorithm in Levitt's latest paper. He explained that the conclusion of the paper focused on the novelty of the idea, while time will tell if the conclusions can be put into practice.
