Dr Keith Campbell
Birth: May 23, 1954, England
Death: Oct. 6, 2012
Nottingham
Nottinghamshire, England

British Scientis, Biologist. Best known for being a member of the scientific team which first cloned a mammal, specifically the now famous sheep Dolly. Graduated in Microbiology at the University of London, obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Sussex by thesis titled "Aspects of cell cycle control in Yeast and Xenopus", he began researching animal cloning at the Roslin Institute near Edinburgh in 1991. In 1997, the success of the experiment sparked international debates about the ethics of cloning. In November 1999, Dr. Campbell became Professor of Animal Development at the University of Nottingham where continued research into the basic mechanisms underlying early development and cellular differentiation. These studies provided basic knowledge on 'epigenetic' programming of nuclear and chromatin structures involved in controlling and maintaining cellular differentiation. He believed that this type of research would allow the development of cell based models for many studies in aging and age related diseases but also aid in the development of novel therapies for both human applications. Dr. Campbell wrote and published several scientific works, including "Nuclear Equivalence, Nuclear Transfer, and the Cell Cycle", "Cloning farm Animal Species. Seminars in Cell and Developmental Biology", "Cloning Dolly: Implications for Human Medicine. In Fertility and Reproductive Medicine " and " Totipotency or multipotentiality of cultured cells: Applications and progress". (bio by: Lucy Caldarelli)
