Harald Stenmark elected fellow of prestigious academy

H. Stenmark
Harald Stenmark for the Department of Biochemistry at the Institute for Cancer Research has recently been elected a Fellow of The European Academy of Cancer Sciences. Stenmark is the third scientist from Norway to be included, the other Norwegian members are Sophie D. Fosså and Anne-Lise Børresen-Dale.
Hosted under the auspices of ECCO (European CanCer Organisation), the Academy strives for excellence, independence, leadership, diversity and flexibility.

The Academy is a ‘virtual’ body, grouping together representatives with outstanding scientific and academic backgrounds from all cancer disciplines to provide knowledgeable and unbiased advice on matters of policy and priorities at the national, European and global level.

The European Academy of Cancer Sciences was launched in September 2009 at the ECCO 15-34th ESMO Multidisciplinary Congress in Berlin, beginning with a ‘Founding Group’ composed of 114 highly-distinguished oncology clinicians and scientists based in 19 European countries spanning the entire oncology spectrum. In 2010 a further 25 Fellows were voted in, and after this year’s election, consisting of nominations and an online voting system, the Academy now boasts 164 top oncology experts.
