ABSTRACT
Hunt, Timothy (1943-), a British biologist, won a share of the 2001 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for his discovery of proteins that help control the growth and multiplication of cells in living organisms. He shared the prize with Sir Paul Nurse, another British biologist; and Leland Harrison Hartwell, an American geneticist. The three scientists all conducted research on the cell cycle �that is, the way cells grow and divide.
