Sebastian Ols at the Department of Medicine, Solna, is awarded the prize for his thesis ‘Cellular and molecular mechanisms for induction of broad anti-viral B cell responses through vaccination’

Prize motivation:

"Sebastian Ols recently successfully defended a thesis in vaccine immunology – a thesis in which he developed and refined methods to study how multivalent nanoparticle vaccine formulations enhance the priming of antiviral B cell responses. During his PhD-project he demonstrated remarkable scientific maturity, leadership, media proficiency, and most importantly an exceptional scientific output that could have high translational value."
