A biochemist is a specialized type of scientists who studies the chemical and physical properties of living things and biological processes such as cell development, growth and heredity.

Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition and chemical reactions of substances in living organisms. Biochemistry emerged as a discipline in the last decade of the 19th century when scientists began to combine biology with chemistry. These early biochemists began to study how living things obtain energy from food, the chemical basis for heredity, and what changes occur in disease.

Biochemistry has a wide array of applications, including medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and botany (the study of plants). Biochemistry also spans pharmacology, microbiology and clinical chemistry.

Please add biochemists to this project! This project serves to collect all biochemists, from the famous to the lesser known.
