Category:

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.”
