Jorge Ruas 2013–2015

Excellent scientist, natural group leader and enthusiastic science communicator, Jorge Ruas at Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Physiology is all three. In awarding Ruas the 2013 Malin and Lennart Philipson Foundation Prize and Research Grant, the Board has done a hat trick. Read more

Olof Idevall-Hagren 2014–2016

has been awarded the M L Philipson award for research on the regulation of insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta-cells. In his research he uses state-of-the-art molecular biology and imaging techniques to characterise the molecular mechanisms underlying this fundamental process. Read more

Erik Norberg 2015–2017

is awarded the prize/grant for his interesting and creative studies of alternations in the metabolism in cancer cells. The results may open new possibilities for cancer diagnostics as well as for future treatment of cancer. The prize will be rewarded in connection with the Installation Ceremony  October 15th. Read more

Maria H Ulvmar 2016–2018

is awarded the M L Philipson prize and grant for research on the lymph node vascular specialization in regulation of anti-tumour immune responses and metastasis. Her research has potential to identify new molecular targets for immune therapy and ways to interfere with the mechanisms that are involved in cancer metastasis. Read more

Volker Lauschke 2017–2019

is awarded the prize/grant 2017 for his work on the development and characterization of physiological hepatic model systems with the goal to study the molecular basis underlying inter-individual differences in drug response.. Read more

Mikael Sellin 2018–2020

is awarded the prize/grant 2018 for his innovative work on bacterial gastrointestinal infections. He has developed a unique organ model for studying how bacteria, like Salmonella, penetrate cells in the intestine and how they interact with cellular components.  Read more
