Addenbrooke’s consultant Dr Ramesh Bulusu received the Collaboration Award from the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) on behalf of the charity PAWS-GIST, which stands for the paediatric, adolescent, wild-type syndromic gastrointestinal stromal tumour consortium (PAWS-GIST).
Dr Bulusu, who collected the award on Monday, 4 November 2019, said: “We are thrilled to win this award, which reflects the hard work of everyone in the consortium. Over recent years new drugs have been developed leading to a dramatically improved outlook for GIST patients. However, there is still much to be done.”
CEO of NCRI Dr Ian Frame said: “We are delighted to recognise and honour the achievements made by these individuals and teams who have worked to help accelerate progress in cancer research for the benefit of patients and society.”
