Sir Paul Maxime Nurse is an English geneticist, former President of the Royal Society and Chief Executive and Director of the Francis Crick Institute. He was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with Leland Hartwell and Tim Hunt for their discoveries of protein molecules that control the division of cells in the cell-division cycle, the series of events that take place in a cell that cause it to divide into two daughter cells. These events include the duplication of its DNA and some of its organelles in a process called cell division. In addition, he found the corresponding gene, cdk1, in humans.

Nurse is known for being the author of the book What is Life which is an accessible summary of the most important historical and current scientific insights on this question.
