Park Parent Dr. Gregg Semenza Receives 2016 Albert Lasker Medical Research Award


Park parent Dr. Gregg L. Semenza is one of among seven recipients of the 2016 Albert Lasker Medical Research Awards announced earlier this week — a medical award seen as a steppingstone to the Nobel Prize. Director of vascular programs at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Cell Engineering and the C. Michael Armstrong Professor of Pediatrics, Dr. Semenza is part of a three-person team of physician-scientists who received the award “for the discovery of the pathway by which cells from humans and most animals sense and adapt to changes in oxygen availability — a process essential for survival.”
