Assar Gabrielsson award for effective treatment of cancer

The 2017 Assar Gabrielsson award is presented to Joydeep Bhadury for his important research that provides a better understanding of the development of cancer and in the future can contribute to the effective treatment of various cancer types.

Cancer develops by stepwise changes in growth characteristics of the cells that may be caused by genetic and epigenetic changes and environmental factors. With the use of new molecular biological methods the analyses of the biological mechanisms behind cancer development have started and generated new important knowledge. Joydeep Bhadury has in this thesis presented important translational cancer research that provides a better understanding of how genetic changes are related to the initiation and development of cancer. “The results of this research can contribute to identify new targets for future effective treatments of various cancer types”, says Professor Eva Forssell-Aronsson, executive member of the Assar Gabrielsson Foundation.
