David Ezra Green (August 5, 1910 – July 8, 1983) was an America biochemist who made significant contributions to the study of enzymes, particularly the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation. He was born in New York and was awarded a degree in biology from New York University. He then moved to England and worked for eight years at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Malcolm Dixon, on redox reactions in biological systems. He received his thesis under Dixon in 1934 with a thesis entitled The Application of Oxidation-Reduction Potentials to Biological Systems.
At the outbreak of the Second World War, Green moved back to America and established himself in a laboratory at Columbia University. Here he studied the metabolism of amino acids and the citric acid cycle. In 1948, Green moved to the University of Wisconsin–Madison and set up the Institute for Enzyme Research, making vital contributions to studies on oxidative phosphorylation, the electron transport chain and beta oxidation.
He is the grandfather of Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin.
