British researcher John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka of Japan have won this year’s Nobel Prize in medicine or physiology.
The prize committee at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute said the two researchers won the award for their discovery that mature, specialized cells can be reprogrammed to become immature cells capable of developing into all tissues of the body.
Their findings had revolutionized understanding of how cells and organisms develop, the Nobel committee said.
