On behalf of the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, I invite you to submit a nomination for the 2019 Lasker Medical Research Awards.

Since 1945, the Lasker Awards have recognized the contributions of scientists, physicians, and public citizens who have made major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of disease.

The Medical Research Awards will be offered in two categories in 2019: Basic Research and Clinical Research. Nominations for the 2019 Lasker~Bloomberg Public Service Award can be made by clicking here. The Special Achievement Award, presented every other year, will next be given in 2020.

The Lasker Foundation encourages you to submit nominations of outstanding scientists; nominations of women and minorities are encouraged.

Nominations that have been made in previous years are not automatically reconsidered. Please see the Instructions section of this website for details on updating and resubmitting a nomination.

Lasker Awards often presage future recognition of the Nobel committee, and they have become known popularly as “America’s Nobels.”  Eighty-eight Lasker laureates have received the Nobel Prize, including 58 in the last four decades. Additional information on the Awards Program and on Lasker laureates can be found here.

A distinguished panel of jurors will select the scientists to be honored with the Lasker Medical Research Awards. The 2019 Award will be presented at a luncheon ceremony given by the Foundation in New York City on Friday, September 20, 2019.
