The 2005 Lasker Award for Clinical Medical Research was presented to Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys of the University of Leicester and Edwin Southern of the University of Oxford.

Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, the Lasker Awards are the US's most distinguished honour for outstanding contributions to basic and clinical medical research, as well as public service on behalf of the medical research enterprise. Often called "America's Nobels," the Lasker Awards have honoured 70 scientists who subsequently went on to receive the Nobel Prize, including 19 in the last 15 years.

Below is a selection of images from the award ceremony, held in New York on Friday September 23 at the Pierre Hotel.
