ERC Consolidator Grant of 20 million NOK awarded to Johanna Olweus

Professor Johanna Olweus, Centre leader for K.G. Jebsen Centre for Cancer Immunotherapy, and head of the Experimental Immunotherapy Group at the Department of Cancer Immunology at Oslo University Hospital, has been awarded a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for her project on immunotherapy “OUTSOURCE: Outsourcing cancer immunity to healthy donors”.

“The foundation that was created for me and my group through long-term research funding and support from the institutions where the research has been carried out, i.e. UiO and OUS, and through the Research Council of Norway, the Regional Health Authorities South-Eastern Norway (Helse Sør-Øst), the Norwegian Cancer Society and – importantly – Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen, has been absolutely crucial to get there we are today”, Olweus says.
