ve therapies and provided high-quality care to patients.

Of note, the Mary Woodard Lasker Public Service Award will now be known as "The Lasker~Bloomberg Public Service Award" in honor of Michael R. Bloomberg, philanthropist and Mayor of New York City.  In naming Mr. Bloomberg the recipient of its 2009 Public Service Award, the Foundation cited his willingness to face down fierce opposition from vested interests to reduce tobacco use and promote healthy eating habits, helping to stop disease before it starts.  The Chairman of the Lasker Foundation's Board of Directors, Alfred Sommer, said, "Michael Bloomberg represents the highest standard of service in the interest of the public's health, and therefore the Foundation is honored to link its public service award to his name."

"The intellectual skill, vision, and clarity of thought displayed by this year's prizewinners extends the scientific community's understanding of how cells operate, led to new treatments that prevented millions of deaths, and has stemmed human suffering," said Maria Freire, President of the Lasker Foundation.  "Creativity, innovation, and determination have allowed them to pursue novel paths in medical research."

"In granting these awards, the Lasker Foundation recognizes a breakthrough in understanding how proteins reach their functional forms and honors the work of a scientist who charted a new course of inquiry into the treatment of malaria," said Joseph L. Goldstein, Chair of the Lasker Medical Research Awards Jury.

"In recognizing the NIH Clinical Center, the Foundation has highlighted the vital role that this research hospital has played in advancing the state of medical research over almost six decades, and in training a generation of leaders in biomedical science," said Harvey V. Fineberg, Chair of the Lasker Public Service Award Selection Committee.
