Nobel prize for stem cell work

9th October 2012

Sir John Gurdon, a UK scientist, has become the shared recipient for the Nobel Prize for medicine.

Professor Gurdon, from Cambridge University, and Professor Shinya Yamanaka were given the award for their work on stem cells, which the Nobel Prize Committee said had "revolutionised" science. The two scientists used human cells to create stems cells; Professor Gurdon "used a gut sample to clone frogs" while Professor Yamanaka "altered genes to reprogramme cells".
