Albert Lester Lehninger (February 17, 1917 — March 4, 1986) was an American biochemist, and is widely regarded as a pioneer in the field of bioenergetics. He made fundamental contributions to the current understanding of metabolism at a molecular level. In 1948, he discovered, with Eugene P. Kennedy, that mitochondria are the site of oxidative phosphorylation in eukaryotes, which ushered in the modern study of energy transduction. He is the author of a number of classic texts, including: Biochemistry, The Mitochondrion, Bioenergetics and, most notably, his quintessential series Principles of Biochemistry. The latter being a widely used text for introductory biochemistry courses at the college and university levels. As a dedicated educator, it was Lehninger's argument that a knowledge of biochemistry is useful for all well-informed citizens, no matter their callings...let alone the very real intellectual excitement it can offer.
