Welcome to attend the digital price ceremony of the Henry Wallman prize in medical technology. This year’s prize will be awarded to associate professor Emma Aneheim.
The Henry Wallman prize is an innovation prize in medical technology, which from 2018 will be awarded annually to young researchers or graduate students who, in close collaboration between expertise in technology and health care, successfully have transferred new knowledge from academia to practical medical care. Henry Wallman came to Chalmers in 1948, and was a pioneer in biomedical engineering research and development. The Foundation for Biomedical Engineering (Stiftelsen Medicin och Teknik) at Chalmers is hosting the prize.
This year, the foundation is proud to announce that the 2020 prize will be awarded to Associate Professor Emma Aneheim with the motivation:
In her research, Emma Aneheim has developed a technology for targeted radiation therapy against cancer. The technology is based on so-called astatinated antibodies and Emma Aneheim has played a crucial role in developing an automated production platform for astatinated drugs in a reproducible, standardized and GMP-adapted way. The method forms the basis for a biotech company, Alpha Therapy Solutions AB. The company is now marketing a technology giving researchers across the world a tool for clinical trials with astatinated drugs.
