No, Dr. Yallo is a woman. She's the first woman to
have won an Albert Lasker Basic Research Award. Berson died

The other awards are going to two men, one for the concept
of be Alpha and Beta blockers in heart disease and
the concept of a drug to deal with these blockers. The other
half of the award is being given to Dr. Brown, who devised
a specific drug called that is a big advance in
the treatment of angina pectoris, the agonizing pain that
comes from a blocked artery. It also is a drug that is being
used for high blood pressure in sose cases, but it's considered
the biggest pharmacological advance in heart disease, a milestone
in heart disease treatment. Ednorel is now being widely used.
There are other similar agents used, but this is the one that
is sold here by Ayerst.
That's quite a collection of awards.
Yes, it's wonderful.
How did you determine these people? I mean how did you
determine the areas?
