Dr. Jennifer Keller, M.D. is a human medical doctor who joined Earth's Stargate Program and replaced the deceased Carson Beckett as chief medical officer of the Atlantis Expedition. She found it difficult to cope with the pressures of the Pegasus Galaxy, but was thrust into duty as Atlantis faced one disaster after another. Continuing Beckett's own pioneering work, she proved vital in developing a cure to the Wraith Michael Kenmore's plague. With her help, the Expedition was able to end his crusade against vulnerable human worlds during his people's civil war. Once adjusted to life on the Ancient city, Keller became a trusted and respected member of the team, eventually striking up a relationship with Rodney McKay. She is often the first on the scene of any medical crisis, ready and able to do whatever it takes to save lives, friend or foe.
