German molecular biologist Axel Ullrich broadened the scientific understanding of the genetic causes of cancer and other diseases. The 73-year-old made landmark contributions to the field of genetics and also pioneered novel treatments, including growth-inhibiting drugs for breast, intestinal, and kidney cancer. He made history with the discovery of the HER2/neu oncogene responsible for gene-related breast cancer. Ullrich also developed the anti-cancer drug Herceptin to stop this particular form of cancer.
