Two researchers at Karolinska Institutet have been awarded funds from the Sjöberg Foundation. The foundation promotes cancer research, and research on health and the environment.

"OGG1 inhibitors as a novel strategy to treat MYC driven liver cancer".
- Anna Pasetto, at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, has been awarded SEK 6 million for the research project:
"Identification of the neo-antigenome in Hepatocellular Carcinoma to guide T cells against relevant targets for successful immunotherapy".
The funding will be distributed over a three-year period. The foundation aims to promote scientific research with a main focus on cancer, health and the environment. To a lesser extent, other charitable purposes in health and the environment can be promoted.
