Donald Herman Voet (born November 29, 1938) is an Emeritus Associate Professor of Chemistry at the [1 ] University of Pennsylvania. His laboratory uses x-ray crystallography to understand structure-function relationships in proteins. He and his wife, [2 ] Judith G. Voet, are authors of biochemistry text books that are widely used in undergraduate and graduate curricula. [3 ] [4 ] [5 ] [6 ]
Education [ edit ]
Voet earned his B.S. in chemistry from the
California Institute of Technology in 1960 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University with William N. Lipscomb, Jr. in 1967. [6 ] [7 ] [8 ]
He completed his postdoctoral research at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1969 in the laboratory of Alexander Rich. He later became a professor in the chemistry department at the University of Pennsylvania. Voet and his wife are coeditors-in-chief of the journal Biochemical and Molecular Biology Education. [2 ] [6 ]
