Emad Tajkhorshid and Christophe Chipot. Tribute to Klaus Schulten. Journal of Physical Chemistry B, 121:3203-3205, 2017.

TAJK2017-ET Klaus Schulten was a true leader in modern computational biophysics, who devoted over 40 years of his life to establishing the physical mechanisms underlying processes and organization in living systems from the atomic to the organism scale. Klaus was a strong proponent of the use of simulations as a “computational microscope”, 301 to augment experimental research, and to lead to discoveries that could not be made through experiments alone. (Please see “Selected Publications of Klaus Schulten” (DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpcb.7b02902), also included in this issue, for the references cited here.) Being genuinely passionate, and quite successful, in applying physical principles and computational methodologies to biological problems through advanced algorithms exploiting modern hardware architectures, his research spanned diverse areas, ranging from application of quantum physics to vision and magnetoreception to some of the largest ever molecular simulations of whole cells and cellular scale structures and processes. During his impactful career, Klaus published more than 700 research articles, cited nearly 100,000 times, earning him an h-index of 140 (Google Scholar, April 2017).
