List of biochemists



This page aims to list articles on about famous biochemists.

Additional recommended knowledge

This list is not necessarily complete or up to date - if you see a biography that should be here but isn't (or one that shouldn't be here but is), please update the page accordingly, even if you have no information at hand for a biography.
Note that the definition of biochemist is fairly loose here, and noted chemical biologists, biophysicists and others are included.

The format for each entry is:

  • Name, (birth-death), Nationality, optional brief reason for fame - maybe including link.
