The award has been conferred annually in recognition of outstanding achievements since 1990. It is linked to a scientific guest lecture which is given by the winner during the annual meeting of the DGZ. Jaenisch is increasingly devoting his attention to therapeutic cloning in animal models and to stem cell research. In 2002 he was the first geneticist to prove that a genetic defect in mice can be cured by therapeutic cloning.
