Default MD Anderson researcher wins major scientific prize

Quote:

James Allison, the Houston scientist whose pioneering research has led to a new class of cancer treatment that frees the immune system to attack tumors, has won the 2015 Lasker Award for

clinical medical research, one of the world's most prestigious scientific prizes.

Allison, chairman of immunology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, becomes only the third Houstonian ever to win a Lasker, which have been called the "American Nobels." Drs. Michael E. DeBakey of Baylor

College of Medicine in 1963 and Emil Freireich of M.D. Anderson in 1972 were the previous Houston winners.

"Jim Allison found a way to remove the brakes that stop T cells from fighting tumor cells - a discovery that opens brand new and very effective ways to treat cancer," Dr. Joseph Goldstein, chair of the

Lasker Medical Research Awards Jury, said in a statement Tuesday announcing the awards, now in their 70th year.
