2011 Lasker Awards Honor Medical Research Pioneers
Date:9/12/2011

rature citing successful clinical trials for artemisinin appeared in late 1979, but as was customary in China at the time, the authors were anonymous. The paper drew attention and in 1981, Tu appeared at an international meeting where she presented her findings on artemisinin and its chemical derivatives that form the foundation of today's life-saving therapies.

Malaria remains a killer. The mosquito-borne parasites that cause the disease infected 247 million people in 2008 and caused almost one million deaths. Pockets of resistance have cropped up and since 2006, the WHO has recommended treatments that combine an unrelated chemical with an artemisinin-based compound. Today it is clear that Tu's insight and vision have saved millions of lives, particularly in the developing world, and continues to yield long-term medical benefits in the ongoing fight against this deadly disease.

The Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health - Providing Innovative Therapies and Training New Generations of Physician-Scientists

The Lasker~Bloomberg Public Service Award honors the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health for creating a research hospital where doctors develop innovative therapies and explore new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide variety of diseases. Since its inception in 1953, the Center has spearheaded major advances in a wide array of medical arenas and has distinguished itself as a model research institution that has trained thousands of investigators, many of whom have gone on to lead their own organizations.

Today, research scientists from 18 of the 27 NIH Institutes and Centers, each of which focuses on a particular biomedical realm, collaborate with the Center, which has treated more than 450,000 patients from 149 countries since it opened. It does so – providing state-of-the-art care – at no cost to patients.  In 2010, the Center treated 10,086 individuals, and its physicians ar
