Through computer simulations, scientists are able to track the movement of individual atoms and molecules over time and make use of this highly detailed information to help understand the workings of the living cell, analyze the origins of diseases, and design more effective drug therapies and fuel cells. The ability to visualize the atomic-level environment as it evolves over time allows for incredible technological advancements and provides a greater appreciation for the underlying beauty to be found in the natural world.
Share a pint with two young scientists who will highlight how computers are changing the way we study systems such as proteins, fuel cells and viruses and the societal impact of what is being discovered.
