Executive summary: Embryonic stem cells

Geneticist Martin Evans showed that embryonic stem cells could generate hybrid animals that could transmitting their genetic material to subsequent generations. His work also showed that embryonic stem cells could be modified in culture dishes and used to alter mice capable of reproducing and transmitting genetic alterations in every cell to their offspring. Evans' research has allowed gene manipulations leading to genetically-engineered animals.

Evans was knighted in 2004, and received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2007. His Nobel honors were shared with Mario Capecchi and Oliver Smithies.
