Arieh Warshel (77), is an Israeli-American chemist and biochemist. Together with Martin Karplus and Michael Levitt, Warshel was awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry for "the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems."
Prof. Warshel is one of the most prominent researchers in the field of computational methods for studies of chemical and biological systems. These are methods that are much used and further developed at the Hylleraas Centre, a Norwegian Centre of Excellence. Prof. Warshel has over the years been a strong supporter of the Hylleraas Center at UiT, and have visited UiT on multiple occasions, both as a lecturer and as an opponent at PhD defenses.
