The South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst) aims to profile ongoing excellent research in the region by calling special attention to a "Scientist of the Month".
This honour recently went to Therese Sørlie, department head at Department of Cancer Genetics at the Institute for Cancer Research and leader of the "Breast tumor initiation and progression" group. She is presented in a feature article (in Norwegian) entitled "Why does cancer become cancer?".
