Scientists win Nobel Prize for gay parent stem cell work

The scientists whose ground-breaking research will make it possible for gay couples to conceive a child together have won the Nobel Prize for Medicine.

British boffin John Gurdon and Japan's Shinya Yamanaka were awarded the coveted accolade today (Oct. 8) and will share the prize of 8 million crowns ($1,201,354).

The University of Kyoto scientists experimented with mice and were able to artificially create eggs from stem cells that produced healthy offspring, a study published in Science showed.

The breakthrough has the potential to help infertile women conceive and allow gay couples to combine their DNA to create a child biologically parented by both of them.
