ABSTRACT
Spemann, Hans (1869-1941) was a German biologist and a pioneer in the field of experimental embryology. He received the 1935 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for his discoveries regarding the development process of embryos. His breakthrough concept of �embryological induction� contributed to the establishment of the school of developmental biology.
