(CNN)Two US researchers who developed the technology that underlies both the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccines won a prestigious medical prize Friday often known as "America's Nobel."

Dr. Drew Weissman and Katalin Karikó of the University of Pennsylvania share the 2021 Lasker clinical medical research award for their work developing messenger RNA technology, the Lasker Foundation said.

 

oh look MORE awards:

 

The BUILDING THE FOUNDATION AWARD recognizes an individual(s) whose basic research discoveries played a pivotal role in the response to COVID-19.

Drew Weissman, MD, PhD, a pioneer in mRNA therapeutics and currently serves as Director of Vaccine Research and Professor of Medicine in the Infectious Diseases Division at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. Together with his collaborator, Katalin Karikó, PhD, Dr. Weissman discovered a way to modify mRNA to facilitate uptake in the body without causing dangerous immune reactions. This innovation unlocked the therapeutic potential of mRNA, including serving as the foundational technology underpinning the first two FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines. These vaccines, developed by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, boasted an unprecedented over 94% success rates – which experts believe is in large part due to the nucleoside-modified mRNA-lipid nanoparticle vaccine platform developed by Drs. Karikó, Pardi, and Weissman. 

Modified mRNA technology has profound implications for the future of health care, including possible applications for numerous vaccines and therapeutics. Dr. Weissman’s lab is currently developing modified mRNA vaccines for multiple infectious diseases, including HIV and influenza. His team has also developed methods to deploy modified mRNA to replace genetically deficient proteins, effectively deliver therapeutic proteins, and edit the genome.

So was Bernard fukn Manning, Roy chubby Brown and alf garnett

 

Are they all complicit in this vaccine genocide?


Were they world wide superstars or just biggots ?

Find a covid news link in past two pages of posts about Jews.

 

It has been side tracked because some people don't like people calling out "the" (some) jewish people as culprits of the fraud and criminally responsible.

Yeah, my mates beat up your mates at the battle of waterloo. It was 40 years ago. get over it mate.

 

i think we (the british) ARE over most historical stuff

 

we aren't the ones waging the war on a target population

 

we are the ones having a war waged against us

nah, that's not what I meant at all. You should distrust all sides. The enemy of you enemy is not your friend. never let your guard down.

 

That's what I mean. When you have understanding it means distrusting all sides

Pointing out SOME of the main players of this shit show we find ourselves in certainly seems to trigger a lot of people...

what modern warfare looks like:

 

Drew Weissman (born 1958 or 1959[1]) is a physician-scientist best known for his contributions to RNA biology. His work helped enable development of effective mRNA vaccines, the best known of which are those for COVID-19 produced by BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna.[2] Weissman is a professor of medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn). He and his research colleague Katalin Karikó have received numerous awards including the presigious Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award.

Weissman did a residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Katalin Karikó (Hungarian: Karikó Katalin, pronounced [ˈkɒrikoː ˌkɒtɒlin]; born 17 January 1955) is a Hungarian biochemist who specializes in RNA-mediated mechanisms. Her research has been the development of in vitro-transcribed mRNA for protein therapies. She co-founded and was CEO of RNARx, from 2006 to 2013.[1] Since 2013, she has been associated with BioNTech RNA Pharmaceuticals, first as a vice president and promoted to senior vice president in 2019.[2] She also is an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania.[1]

Karikó's work includes the scientific research of RNA-mediated immune activation, resulting in the co-discovery with American immunologist Drew Weissman of the nucleoside modifications that suppress the immunogenicity of RNA.[3][4][5] This is seen as further contribution to the therapeutic use of mRNA.[6] Together with Weissman, she holds U.S. patents for the application of non-immunogenic, nucleoside-modified RNA. This technology has been licensed by BioNTech and Moderna to develop their protein replacement technologies but was also used for their COVID-19 vaccines.[7] She and Weissman have received many awards including the prestigious Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award and Time Magazine's Hero of the Year 2021.

In early 2013, Karikó heard of Moderna's $240 million deal with AstraZeneca to develop a Vascular endothelial growth factor mRNA. Karikó realized that she would not get a chance to apply her experience with mRNA at the University of Pennsylvania, so she took a role as vice president at BioNTech RNA Pharmaceuticals.[2](and subsequently became a senior vice president in 2019)

Her research and specializations include messenger RNA-based gene therapy, RNA-induced immune reactions, molecular bases of ischemic tolerance, and treatment of brain ischemia.

Someone should make a new thread about the argument so we can discuss it in more detail. In the spirit of staying on topic. 

MOD NOTE;

lf l came along later and discovered this l'd be mighty pissed off....
But being in the middle of it as it developed gave me some interesting incites.

At some point soon the past 3 or 4 pages will become a different thread.

It's not all I'm concerned with. I started a thread about the Jungle Book. I didn't want that to be about race, but guess who tried t make that thread about race despite my protestations about not wanting to talk about race?
