CAPTION READS: New York, N.Y. . . . Ten Albert Lasker Medical Research Awards winners are shown as they were presented at a press conference at the Hotel St. Regis on Wednesday, November 19.
Five Clinical Award winners won their awards for developing a vaccine against RH disease, which is caused by a blood factor called RH. When there is an incompatibility in the RH blood factors between father and mothers, a baby can be born dead or abnormal, a situation prevented by the vaccine.
The four Lasker Basic Award winners were honored for advancing research in Recombinant DNA--genetic engineering (gene-splicing).
The tenth winner, honored for a monumental study on high blood pressure, is the Heart, Lung, & Blood Institute, represented by its director, Dr. Robert I. Levy.
