HHMI Investigator Mario R.Capecchi Wins 2007 Nobel Prize inPhysiology or Medicine

Posted by iskanbasal on October 8, 2007

“The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute announced this morning that the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Mario R. Capecchi, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at the University of Utah, Martin J. Evans at Cardiff University, and Oliver Smithies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill”.

“Capecchi is credited with developing a powerful technology known as gene targeting. This technology has allowed scientists to engineer mice with conditions such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cystic fibrosis, and high blood pressure—a feat that has revolutionized the study of human disease”.

I received this morning the news from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute HHMI in my inbox ; the detailed news tell many interesting facts about Cepecchi’s life and his great feats.
