Lasker award winner Carol Greider unlocked mysteries of chromosome ends, now linked to disease.

A Triumph for Basic Science
A Lasker Award—a.k.a. the “American Nobel”—goes to one of our own

Carol Greider has been honored with this year’s Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research for her discovery of telomerase, an enzyme that protects chromosome ends, or telomeres.

Her breakthrough, made on Christmas Day 1984—when she was just 23—laid the foundation for studies showing that the enzyme plays a major role in cancer growth and aging.
