End of 2022, we had to say goodbye to CRIG group leader Prof. Pieter Van Vlierberghe, after his brave yet unfair battle against cancer. For many years, Pieter has been one of the driving forces of cancer research in Ghent, and made great contributions in the field of (pediatric) leukemia and lymphoma. He really embodied the mission of CRIG to stimulate cancer research through collaboration, and was an excellent leader and motivator for his colleagues, co-workers and students. But most of all, Pieter was a wonderful person and a fantastic friend to many of us. To honor and remember him, CRIG launches the ‘Pieter Van Vlierberghe Award’, a yearly award for the best paper in oncology published by a young CRIG researcher.
Budget: 500 euro
Deadline: 10 April 2023
