Michael E. Green
Michael E. Green was born in New York City in 1938. He received his B.S. degree (in chemistry, with honors) from Cornell University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physical chemistry from Yale University. He served as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at California Institute of Technology with Wilse Robinson. After this, he spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer, teaching at Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey (from 1964 to 1966). Since then, he has been at The City College of the City University of New York, where he works as a Professor of chemistry. He became a Department Chair for six years (1990-1996). He chaired the New York Academy of Sciences section of Biophysics (1987-1988). His research interests began with membrane noise measurements, which included some of the earliest such measurements in the late 1960s. For the last two decades, he has been working on a biophysics problem, ion channel gating, primarily using quantum calculations to test this hypothesis.
