French immunologist Jean Dausset died earlier this month at the age of 92. In 1958, he discovered the human leukocyte antigen, HLA, and shared the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1980 with George Snell and Baruj Benacerraf. In 1984, Dausset founded the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Humain, today called the Foundation Jean Dausset-CEPH, which helped create a genetic and physical map of the human genome.
