They have been awarded within the framework of the 19th Annual ENETS (European neuroendocrine tumor society) Conference 2022 and 1st World NET Forum 2022, with the following motivation:
For their outstanding article entitled “Independent somatic evolution underlies clustered neuroendocrine tumors in the human small intestine” in Nature communications (2021) 12:6367
Receiving The Håkan Ahlman Award was according to Erik Elias also appreciated because of the local connection. Namely since Håkan Ahlman was a professor of Endocrine Surgery at University of Gothenburg since 1994. He had over a hundred publications in the field of neuroendocrine tumors and was a founding member of ENET in 1995 and of ENETS in 2004.
