Caption: Andrew Wyllie. Portrait of British molecular biologist Professor Andrew Wyllie, researcher on apoptosis (genetically-programmed cell death). He is seen here in 1994 in his laboratory at the Department of Pathology, Edinburgh University Medical School. Wyllie and two colleagues (John Kerr and Alastair Currie) were first to describe cell suicide in 1972 in skin cancer cells, and they coined the term apoptosis. Apoptosis is an inevitable process of cell death switched on by genes. Wyllie is working on genetic aspects of apoptosis, a field of study which may provide gene therapy for aging, and treatments for cancer in which cells become immortal and do not die.
