Andrew Wyllie was a key figure in the discovery of the programmed cell
death process termed apoptosis. He pioneered the study of apoptosis when
this was a little-known phenomenon and discovered the first biochemical
marker of the process, internucleosomal DNA degradation. Andrew recently passed away, aged 78, but leaves a legacy of scientific achievement
that opened up a new field of research.
