Summary

This week's Newsmakers are former NASA investigator Stewart Nozette, who admitted to attempted espionage; two scientists who discovered a cell "machine" involved in protein folding and a researcher who found a lifesaving malaria drug, who are this year's recipients of the Lasker Awards; a dozen cancer patients who are suing Duke University, alleging that they were enrolled in clinical trials based on faulty data; and an astrophysicist and an evolutionary biologist who are among the winners of this year's Balzan Prizes.
