The Three "Musketairs" – Lasker Prize 2016 goes to the protagonists of hypoxia research


Wenger, R H; Katschinski, D M (2016). The Three "Musketairs" – Lasker Prize 2016 goes to the protagonists of hypoxia research. Hypoxia, 2016(4):101-162.

Abstract

Who does not know them? One bearded like a pirate, one knighted by the Queen, and one of noble spirit. United in the fight for truth and honor! No, this is not about Alexandre Dumas’ characters Porthos, Athos, and Aramis, well-known from the famous novel The Three Musketeers.1 This is about the most recent awardees of the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award, the three protagonists of hypoxia research Gregg Semenza, Sir Peter Ratcliffe, and Bill Kaelin. The recent bestowal of the Lasker Prize is just another hallmark in a long list of recognitions of the major achievements by these three outstanding colleagues. What major victories in the battle against the unknowns in hypoxia research did our three heroes achieve?

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
