Studies in the emerging field of cellular bioenergetics
Studies in the emerging field of cellular bioenergetics, a branch of biochemistry concerned with how energy flows through living systems, suggest that molecules from orchids might be able to repair decaying mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, in humans.

You can dramatically affect the expression of your metabolism and your biochemistry by the way you eat and the way you live.

After taking my B.A. degree in 1939 I remained at the University for a further year to take an advanced course in Biochemistry, and surprised myself and my teachers by obtaining a first class examination result.

Frederick Sanger
There is a close analogy between organic chemistry in its relation to biochemistry and pure mathematics in its relation to physics.

Robert Robinson
By the time I was 12 or 13, I was studying biochemistry textbooks.

In the 21st century our tastes buds, our brain chemistry, our biochemistry, our hormones and our kitchens have been hijacked by the food industry.

It is one of the more striking generalizations of biochemistry – which surprisingly is hardly ever mentioned in the biochemical textbooks – that the twenty amino acids and the four bases, are, with minor reservations, the same throughout Nature.

By then, I was making the slow transition from classical biochemistry to molecular biology and becoming increasingly preoccupied with how genes act and how proteins are made.

Paul Berg
Biochemistry is the science of life. All our life processeswalking, talking, moving, feeding – are essentially chemical reactions. So biochemistry is actually the chemistry of life, and it’s supremely interesting.

In marked contrast to the University of Wisconsin, Biochemistry was hardly visible at Stanford in 1945, consisting of only two professors in the chemistry department.

Paul D Boyer
As we returned to Argentina, I started seriously to work towards a doctoral degree under the direction of Professor Stoppani, the Professor of Biochemistry at the Medical School.

Cesar Milstein
In Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Jekyll & Hyde,’ the hero decides on the terms of his transformation in a process that’s explained not through the supernatural but the natural or, at least, through biochemistry.

The war project at Stanford was essentially completed, and I accepted an offer of an Assistant Professorship at the University of Minnesota, which had a good biochemistry department.

Paul D Boyer
Biology is far from understanding exactly how a single cell develops into a baby, but research suggests that human development can ultimately be explained in terms of biochemistry and molecular biology. Most scientists would make a similar statement about evolution.

Changing from biochemistry to law was easy because I was rubbish in the laboratory. I could never decide how much to put in a test tube because I’m not very good at maths.

At university – when I was supposed to be studying biochemistry – I had tried to write a children‘s book about a boy and a wolf cub, and there was a paragraph in that which was from the wolf’s point of view.

My brother has a Ph.D. in biochemistry, which I find so totally impressive.

Her death contributed to my later interest in studying biochemistry, an interest that has not been fulfilled in the sense that my accomplishments remain more at the basic than the applied level.

Paul D Boyer
It was a big surprise when I started to get attention in Sweden, going from biochemistry studies to touring and living from music only. There were a couple of years while I went to university when I was OK with thinking of music as just a nice recreation.

Jose Gonzalez
I floated around in the department of biochemistry and learned some interesting things, and then I began to… I never wanted to work with a mentor because I always wanted to have my own reputation and be free to do what I wanted to do. So I worked with the weakest people in the department. Don’t make that public.

Irwin Rose
An unexpected benefit of my career in biochemistry has been travel.

Paul D Boyer
One of the major lessons in all of biochemistry, cell biology and molecular medicine is that when proteins operate at the sub cellular level, they behave in a certain way as if they’re mechanical machinery.

James Rothman
To describe the overwhelming life of a tropical forest just in terms of inert biochemistry and DNA didn’t seem to give a very full picture of the world.

Arthritis, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, depression – all of those diseases are a result of our neglected biochemistry. We need to be stimulated to help fight disease. Cold is a great stimulator.
