The advances made in recent years in clinical cancer chemotherapy still appear to be not widely known by the public, the medical profession, and the communications media. Therefore the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation this year is giving its Medical Research Awards to 15 physicians and scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the field of clinical cancer chemotherapy.

A notable jury of cancer specialists selected the winners, under the chairmanship of Dr. Sidney Farber, President of the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation.
