Nettverksmedlem Anne-Lise Børresen-Dale er tildelt den årlige prisen utdelt fra The American Association for Cancer Research – Women in Cancer Research (AACR-WICR). Mandag 3. april holdt Børresen-Dale foredraget «Multilevel Molecular Analyses in Breast Cancer: Gauging Inter- and Intra-Tumor Heterogeneity and Elucidating its Role in Treatment Response» på det årlige møtet for AACR-WICR i Washington Convention Center, DC.
Utdrag fra AACR-nettsiden:
The WICR Friend Lectureship is presented to an outstanding scientist who has made meritorious contributions to the field of cancer research and who has, through leadership or by example, furthered the advancement of women in science.
Anne-Lise Børresen-Dale, PhD is honored for her seminal work which expanded our understanding of breast cancer evolution. Dr. Borresen-Dale’s pioneering studies were among the first to identify distinct sub-groups of breast cancer, based on the molecular profile of the tumor. Her systems approach to breast cancer has revealed important insights into the impact of genotype and gene expression on elevated cancer risk, radiation sensitivity, tumor aggressiveness, and therapy resistance. She is highly regarded by her peers not only as a collaborative and generous colleague and mentor, but also as a tireless advocate for better outcomes for women with breast cancer through research.
