FRONTIERS OF KNOWLEDGE AWARD

Biology and Biomedicine

15th Edition

The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Biology and Biomedicine has gone in this fifteenth edition to David Baker, Demis Hassabis and John Jumper “for their contributions to the use of artificial intelligence for the accurate prediction of the three-dimensional structure of proteins,” in the words of the committee; an advance, it adds,  with huge biomedical potential for the development of new treatments against multiple conditions.
