Paul Delos Boyer (born July 31, 1918) is an American biochemist, analytical chemist, and a professor of chemistry at University of California, Los Angeles ( UCLA).

Boyer shared the 1997 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for research on the " enzymatic mechanism underlying the biosynthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)" ( ATP synthase) with John E. Walker, making Boyer the only Utah-born Nobel laureate; the remainder of the Prize in that year was awarded to Danish chemist Jens Christian Skou for his discovery of the Na+/K+-ATPase.

In 2003 he was one of 22 Nobel Laureates who signed the Humanist Manifesto. [1]
