Donald Herman Voet (born November 29, 1938)[1] is an Emeritus Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania. His laboratory uses x-ray crystallography to understand structure-function relationships in proteins.[2] He and his wife, 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]

Career[edit]

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]
