Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research

Roger Guillemin, Andrew Schally

(For determination of the structure of hypothalamic hormones, their synthesis, and elucidation of their role in endocrine function\u2014work which is considered the decisive physiological and biochemical evidence of neurohormones in mammals. Such research has established the fact that the pituitary gland and certain other glands of the endocrine system are regulated by the brain through the hypothalamus.)
Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research

Frank J. Dixon

(For demonstrating, in a series of brilliant experimental studies with model systems in laboratory animals, that immunologic responses, which ordinarily serve to protect the individual, may actually cause injury and disease.)

(For his original conception of a scanning system which would be able to image soft tissue, and would thus uncover and display information that could not previously be shown by conventional radiography techniques.)
Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research

Henry Kunkel

(For basic contributions to our understanding of immunology and especially immunological mechanisms which are an underlying factor in certain human renal diseases, and in arthritis.)
