"America's Nobels," the annual awards--light on money but heavy in prestige--from the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, go this year to six biomedical researchers. They include neuroscientist Seymour Kety, 84, pioneer explorer into the biological roots of schizophrenia, who works at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts.
The winners of the Basic Medical Research Award, for work on the architecture of ion-channel proteins, are physiology professors Clay M. Armstrong of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and Bertil Hille of the University of Washington, Seattle; and neurobiologist Roderick MacKinnon of The Rockefeller University in New York City. The Clinical Medical Research Award goes to David W. Cushman and Miguel A. Ondetti, two Bristol-Myers Squibb researchers who designed ACE inhibitors, cardiovascular drugs. The $10,000 awards will be presented in New York City on 1 October.
