CanCell has the privilege of having the services of a User Panel, composed of cancer patients and/or next-of-kin.
The current user panel is:
- Per Axel Ankre, Prostatakreftforeningen
- Astrid Jahr, Sarkomer
- Kari Grønaas, Lungekreftforeningen
- Trude Wetaas, Blodkreftforeningen
They all have unique perspective about cancer patient experiences and are an invaluable asset for CanCell. Helene Knævelsrud has been instrumental to the development of the user panel and leads the annual panel feedback for grant applications.
