Axel Brunger, a Stanford University professor, has won the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology's inaugural DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences.

The award was established to honor those who create accessible and innovative developments or applications of computer technology to enhance research in the life sciences at the molecular level.

Nominees' contributions must promote more productive use of computers to accelerate and facilitate research and ready access of those programs for the scientific community.

Brunger will receive a plaque, a $3,000 cash award, and present a lecture at the ASBMB annual meeting.
