Congratulations to Tim Springer, Latham Family Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology and Principal Investigator at Boston Children’s Hospital Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine, on being a co-recipient of the 2022 Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award with Richard Hynes of MIT and Erkki Ruoslahti of Sanford Burnham Prebys in California.  The award recognizes Tim for his seminal work that contributed to the identification and understanding of integrins, proteins of a large family that, as physical and biochemical connectors of cells with one another and with their surrounding environment, are literally the underpinnings of life itself.  Find out more about the award here.
