On behalf of all of NCMM, we would like to say a huge thank you and farewell to Professor Kjetil Taskén and his group. 

Professor Taskén officially stepped down from his role as Director of NCMM on 30 June to take up his new position as Director of the Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital. The Taskén Group will slowly move out of NCMM and into the Institute for Cancer Research over the coming months. 

A farewell party, attended by many of NCMM and Professor Taskén's current and former colleagues, including University of Oslo Rector, Svein Stølen and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Frode Vartdal, was held at Forskningsparken on Friday 22 June. 

Professor Taskén has also been appointed as an NCMM Associate Investigator, meaning he will retain an affiliation with NCMM. 

NCMM wishes Professor Taskén and his group all the best for the future.
