2012 Nobel Prize for Medicine

October 8 2012, 15:32

Cell biologists Shinya Yamanaka of Japan and Briton John B. Gurdon have been jointly awarded the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

The Nobel Foundation announced the award on Monday morning, stating that the pair had been chosen “for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent”. Their findings are said to have revolutionised scientific understanding of how cells and organisms develop and have led to new ways of diagnosing and treating diseases.

The laureates will share a prize of eight million Swedish Krona (930,000 euros; $1.2 million).
