Jahre Prize for Young Researchers awarded to two researchers in Diabetes and DNA repair

In the course of their careers Associate Professor Signe Sørensen Torekov and Professor Simon Bekker-Jensen have made great progress within obesity, diabetes and DNA research. They are now awarded the Anders Jahre Prize for young researchers.

University of Oslo awards the Anders Jahre prizes for excellent research within basic and clinical medicine to a group of Nordic researchers. One of the prizes is reserved for young researchers and is a personal prize of NOK 500,000.

This year the prize is split between two young researchers at SUND. One is Associate Professor Signe Sørensen Torekov from the Department of Biomedical Sciences and Metabolism Center at SUND. The other is Professor Simon Bekker-Jensen from the Center for Healthy Aging and the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.
