Australian Scientist wins “America’s Nobels”

Congratulations to Cartherics’ Scientific Advisor Jacques Miller. He co-shares the 2019 Lasker Award for medical research.

Australian scientist, Professor Jacques Miller has won the prestigious Lasker award, often referred to as “America’s Nobels”, for discovering the function of the thymus and for revealing for the first time that there are two types of white blood cells, T cells made in the thymus and B cells made in the bone marrow.

This work has revolutionised our understanding of cancer, vaccines, autoimmune diseases such as AIDS, as well as transplant rejection and allergy. It has also led to the development of a host of new treatments including immunotherapy for cancer.
