Marion Mckinley Bradford (born 1946) is an American scientist[1] who developed and patented the Bradford protein assay,[2] a method to quickly quantify the amount of protein in a sample.[3][4] His paper describing the method is among the most cited scholarly articles of all time.[5][6][7]

Bradford was born October 28, 1946 in Rome, Georgia (USA), and received his B.A. from Shorter College there in 1967.[1] In 1971 he married Janet Holliday.[1][8] He obtained his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Georgia in 1975. Bradford was employed by the University as a research biochemist from 1977 to 1983.[1] In the latter year he joined A. E. Staley and worked in biochemical research there until his retirement.[1]
