– I feel proud. This is a recognition of my research over the years. It is a research that has largely also been made possible by the Cancer Foundation’s support, he says Henrik Grönberg, chief physician and professor of cancer epidemiology at Capio St. Göran’s Hospital and Karolinska Institutet, in a press release.
Henrik Grönberg has been researching prostate cancer since the 1990s and his research has contributed to prostate cancer being detected earlier.
The Cancer Foundation’s motivation is:
”For world-leading research on prostate cancer. For methods of detecting prostate cancer at an early stage, but also to avoid unnecessary examinations, as well as to identify the patients who need to be treated immediately. All this contributes to more individualized treatment, an increased chance of cure and a high quality of life. ”
The award will be presented during the live TV gala Together against cancer, which will be broadcast on 10 January on TV4, and will be nominated by the Cancer Foundation’s research committee.
