2019 Lasker Prize Collection
The adaptive immune system is fundamentally organized around two distinct classes of lymphocytes, B and T cells. By discovering and delineating these two cell types, Max D. Cooper from Emory University and Jacques Miller from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research launched the modern era of immunology research and their pioneering work has now been recognized with the 2019 Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award. We celebrate this award with a collection of JEM studies by Cooper and Miller that revolutionized our understanding of the adaptive immune system.
