Six gleaming replicas of the Winged Victory of Samothrace now grace the homes of a half-dozen happy scientists who have received the 2000 Albert Lasker Medical Research Awards. The statuettes, along with honoraria and citations, were presented on September 22 in New York City to this year's recipients, who have contributed to "humankind's victory over disability, disease, and death."
