A lot of Wieschaus' research focuses on embryogenesis in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and it specifically focuses on the patterning which occurs in the early Drosophila embryo.[1] In 1995, Wieschaus shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Edward B. Lewis "for their discoveries concerning the genetic control of early embryonic development".[1]
