A two-part seminar was held together with CanCell's User Panel. The day started with educational and inspirational presentations from four user representatives (Per Axel Ankre (Prostate Cancer), Trude Wetaas (Blood Cancer), Ole Knutzen (Lung Cancer), Astrid Jahr (Sarcoma)) and their experiences from cancer treatment. The session was expertly led by Helene Knævelsrud from the Enserink group.
After a joint lunch, the representatives gave their feedback on funding proposals in one-to-one meetings, an invaluable perspective for scientists to improve their science and how to present it.
We are grateful to our user panel for taking the time to visit us and hope that these meetings are of mutual benefit.
