Dr George Hitchings, winner of the 1988 Nobel Prize in medicine for recognition of over 40 years of work in developing a range of drugs to fight leukaemia, malaria, gout, organ transplant rejection, herpes virus infection and bacterial infection. Hitchings shared the prize with Dr Gertrude Elion, a colleague at Burroughs-Wellcome Research Laboratories in the U.S. since 1945 and Sir James Black, of Kings College Hospital Medical School, London. Black developed the world's first beta-blockers, drugs that relieve the symptoms of heart disease, and went on to develop cimetidine, a drug used to treat gastric ulcers.
