Research prize to Peter Nygren
Peter Nygren has been awarded Region Uppsala’s research prize for 2019 for his research on individualised and more effective cancer therapy, often called precision medicine.
Peter Nygren is a highly appreciated and skilled professor at IGP and consultant at Uppsala University Hospital. His research focuses on improving cancer therapy by producing information that can be used for selecting the right drug for different patients and by identifying new substances with a better effect on tumour types that lack effective treatments.
Since 2009, Region Uppsala’s council presents a research prize for patient-oriented research. Besides Peter Nygren, four other researchers are this year awarded the prize which is for SEK 10 000.
