John has been instrumental in improving our understanding of biological energy conversion in living cells. Awarded a Nobel prize in 1997 for his work describing how enzymes make ATP, he has outlined one of the most important biological systems known to man. Every day we convert around one-half our body weight in ATP. The constant cycling of this molecule drives everything from decomposition to muscle contraction in anything from bacteria to crocodiles.
