Gunilla Enblad awarded the Rudbeck medal
Gunilla Enblad is rewarded for her preclinical research on the tumour type lymphoma and the interaction between tumour cells and surrounding immune cells.
Uppsala University’s Rudbeck Medal is awarded “for extraordinarily prominent achievements in science, to be conferred primarily for such accomplishments or findings attained at Uppsala University.”
The prize motivation reads: “She is a medical researcher with a strong clinical attachment. Her preclinical research has mainly focused on the tumour biology in lymphoma and the interaction between the tumour cells and the surrounding immune cells in the tumour microenvironment. She has thus contributed to improved therapy for relapsing Hodgins’s lymphoma, and in the development of immunotherapy with CAR-T cells for lymphoma and improved diagnosis for patients with this disease.”
The other recipients of Rudbeck Medals are Annica Black-Schaffer, Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Neil Price, Department of Archeology and Ancient History. The medals will be presented at a ceremony on the University’s birthday, 9 October.
