He has spread his experience and knowledge to professionals in academia and companies, and is a great inspiration for both students, colleagues, and international partners. His ability to be bridge between Karolinska Institutet, the clinic, start-ups and industry is somewhat unique and shows a high ambition for innovation and collaboration. This makes him a well-deserved recipient of the Prize for Innovation and Utilization.”
