Sir Gregory Paul Winter CBE FRS FMedSci (born 14 April 1951) is a British biochemist. He is best known for his work on the therapeutic use of monoclonal antibodies. He invented techniques to both humanise (1986) and, later, to fully humanise using phage display, antibodies for therapeutic uses.[5]

Winter won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with George P. Smith and Frances Arnold.[6]
