One of The Norwegian Research Council's three new prizes for young outstanding researchers goes to Kyrre Eeg Emblem from the Department of Diagnostic Physics at the Division of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. Each prize is 500.000 kroner and will be distributed on March 1st.
Kyrre Eeg Emblem's research will benefit cancer patients directly. Using MRI machines, he can predict how different therapies work on people with cancer. The goal is to understand how the treatment affects the disease, and thereby predict which patients respond to the cancer treatment.
