John H. Golbeck

Prof. John H. Golbeck received his Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry from Indiana University, Bloomington IN, under the supervision of Anthony San Pietro. His postdoctoral studies were carried out at Martin Marietta Laboratories, Baltimore, MD, with Bessel Kok. He is currently a professor in the Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and in the Department of Chemistry at The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Golbeck spent sabbatical leaves at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1984), the Centre d’Etudes Nucl´eaires de Saclay (1992), and at the Freie Universität, Berlin (2002/2003). His current research interests involve the protein factors that confer thermodynamic properties to organic and inorganic cofactors, the structural makeup of Type I reaction centers from anaerobic bacteria, and the modification of Photosystem I to produce H2. He is a member of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the Biophysical Society of America, and the International Society for Photosynthesis Research, for which he serves as Treasurer.
