Campbell wins 2004 Abbott-ASM Lifetime Achievement Award

Allan M. Campbell, Ph.D., Professor of Biological Sciences and Barbara Kimball Browning Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California, will receive the 2004 Abbott-ASM Lifetime Achievement Award, proudly supported by Abbott Laboratories, from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Campbell is honored for his exceptional insights and achievements in the field of molecular genetics, a career of groundbreaking research that has had a profound influence on several fields, including molecular cloning and gene therapy. At the ASM General Meeting, he will deliver the Abbott-ASM Award Lecture, "Unity and Diversity in Lysogeny."

One of Campbell's most celebrated accomplishments was demonstrating the relationship between the genome of bacteriophage lambda (one of a group of viruses that attack bacteria) and its host. In the 1950s, he concluded that bacteriophage lambda associates with and dissociates from its host by inserting and removing a circular viral genome, or set of genes, into the bacterial chromosome. This finding, known as the Campbell model, has led the way for genetic and biochemical studies of site-specific recombination, the exchange of genetic information between the genomes of different species. It also stands as a landmark precursor of current research on the manipulation of genomes.

These early studies led to other noted achievements, including Campbell's discovery of nonsense mutations and important work on bacterial gene regulation. His studies of microbial population dynamics and the evolution of genome structure have increased microbiologists' understanding of such questions as how viruses act as agents of evolution for host genomes and the interaction between bacteriophage evolution and population structure.

As well as his formidable body of research, Campbell is also noted for his extraordinary commitment to the profession of microbiology as an author, educator, an
