"Timothy J. Mitchison"

Discovered microtubule dynamic instability.
Tim Mitchison obtained a biochemistry degree at Oxford University, UK, and then moved to the laboratory of Marc Kirschner for his Ph.D. thesis, during which he purified tubulin from centrosomes and characterized the ‘dynamic instability’ that underlies microtubule growth. He started his own group at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), USA, in 1988 and 9 years later moved to the systems biology department at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. He became the President of the American Society for Cell Biology in 2010.
