Ethan Guth holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Vermont College of Medicine and a B.S. from Goucher College. He joined the Norwich faculty in 2011, where he teaches Introduction to General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry I and II.

The central aim of his research to understand biological processes by elucidating the inner workings of biological machinery such as enzymes, which function as biological machines that accelerate the rate of chemical reactions. Understanding how these molecular machines perform their function allows scientists a “look under the hood” of biological processes and can provide profound insight into the basis of human health and disease.
