Jeffrey Friedman

Wolf Prize Laureate in Medicine 2019

 

The Wolf Foundation Prize Committee in Medicine has decided to award the first Wolf Prize in Medicine jointly to:

George D. Snell
Jackson Laboratory
Bar Harbor, Maine, USA

for discovery of H-2 antigens, which codes for major transplantation antigens and the onset of the immune response.

Jean Dausset
Saint Louis Hospital Paris
Paris, France

for discovering the HL-A system, the major histocompatibility complex in man and its primordial role in organ transplantation.

Jon J. van Rood
University of Leiden
Leiden, The Netherlands

for his contribution to the understanding of the complexity of the HL-A system in man and its implications in transplantation and in disease

Dr. George Snell discovered and described in mice the H-2 antigens, the structure which codes for major transplantation antigens carrier genes. These genes are essential in the onset of the immune response and therefore mechanism of defense.

The investigation of histocompatibility antigens in humans, led ProfessorJ. Dausset in Paris and Professor Van Rood in Leiden to the discovery and description of a model similar to that in mice, the HL-A system. This is the major histocompatibility complex in man, and its primordial role in organ transplantation has been extensively established and eva luated. Moreover, the association of HL-A antigens to the mechanisms governing the incidence of a number of diseases is under active research.

These investigations are a major breakthrough in the understanding of modern genetics and have opened new avenues for adequate matching of organ and tissue transplantation and for possible control and prevention of certain diseases.

The name of the late Peter Gorer, the British scientist who was among the founders of this field will be linked forever to the pillars of medical genetics.

Ralph L. Brinster

Wolf Prize Laureate in Medicine 2003

 

The Wolf Foundation Prize Committee in Medicine has decided to award the first Wolf Prize in Medicine jointly to:

George D. Snell
Jackson Laboratory
Bar Harbor, Maine, USA

for discovery of H-2 antigens, which codes for major transplantation antigens and the onset of the immune response.

Jean Dausset
Saint Louis Hospital Paris
Paris, France

for discovering the HL-A system, the major histocompatibility complex in man and its primordial role in organ transplantation.

Jon J. van Rood
University of Leiden
Leiden, The Netherlands

for his contribution to the understanding of the complexity of the HL-A system in man and its implications in transplantation and in disease

Dr. George Snell discovered and described in mice the H-2 antigens, the structure which codes for major transplantation antigens carrier genes. These genes are essential in the onset of the immune response and therefore mechanism of defense.

The investigation of histocompatibility antigens in humans, led ProfessorJ. Dausset in Paris and Professor Van Rood in Leiden to the discovery and description of a model similar to that in mice, the HL-A system. This is the major histocompatibility complex in man, and its primordial role in organ transplantation has been extensively established and eva luated. Moreover, the association of HL-A antigens to the mechanisms governing the incidence of a number of diseases is under active research.

Dr. George Snell discovered and described in mice the H-2 antigens, the structure which codes for major transplantation antigens carrier genes. These genes are essential in the onset of the immune response and therefore mechanism of defense.

The investigation of histocompatibility antigens in humans, led ProfessorJ. Dausset in Paris and Professor Van Rood in Leiden to the discovery and description of a model similar to that in mice, the HL-A system. This is the major histocompatibility complex in man, and its primordial role in organ transplantation has been extensively established and eva luated. Moreover, the association of HL-A antigens to the mechanisms governing the incidence of a number of diseases is under active research.

These investigations are a major breakthrough in the understanding of modern genetics and have opened new avenues for adequate matching of organ and tissue transplantation and for possible control and prevention of certain diseases.

The name of the late Peter Gorer, the British scientist who was among the founders of this field will be linked forever to the pillars of medical genetics.
