Gösta Pettersson, born Nov 24 1937 

Professional carrier at the University of Lund, Sweden

Ph D in biochemistry                             1966
Professor assistant in biochemistry    1968–77
Professor in biochemistry                     1978–2001


My research focused initially on the mechanisms of catalysis for individual enzymes (e.g. alcohol dehydrogenase and copper-containing amine oxidases), with reaction kinetics as a methodological speciality. Eventually my research shifted towards studies of the interplay of enzymes in metabolic networks such as the glycolytic pathway and the Calcin cycle for photosynthetic carbon dioxide fixation.

Due to my expertise in enzyme kinetics and mathematical modelling, I have been frequently engaged as a scientific reviewer by various biochemical journals. During the 1970s and 1980s, I was on the Advisory Board of the Biochemical Journal and the European Journal of Biochemistry. 1989–1999 I was an Editor of the European Journal of Biochemistry.
