Greg Bowman, one of the main Folding@Home researchers, has been awarded the 2010 "Thomas Kuhn Paradigm Shift" by the American Chemical Society (ACS) for his lectures on two paradigm shifts that Folding@Home has precipitated, namely:

  • The new methods that Folding@home has pioneered in simulating protein folding, misfolding, etc.
  • The results themselves, which signal a significant change in protein folding theory.
