Gail Martin was born and raised in New York City. She received her undergraduate degree from the
University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1964. As a graduate student in Harry Rubin’s laboratory at UC
Berkeley, she studied the behavior of chicken cells transformed by Rous sarcoma virus. After receiving
her Ph.D. in 1971, Gail did postdoctoral work in Martin Evans’ laboratory at University College, London,
where she defined conditions for isolating and maintaining pluripotent mouse teratocarcinoma stem
cells in the undifferentiated state and for triggering their differentiation in vitro. This work established
teratocarcinoma stem cells as a model system for studying the early steps in mouse embryogenesis.
After returning to the Bay Area in 1975, she continued postdoctoral work in Charles Epstein’s laboratory
