A Journey in Science: Medical Scientist in Translation
Real innovations in medicine and science are historic and singular; the stories behind each occurrence are precious. At Molecular Medicine we have established the Anthony Cerami Award in Translational Medicine to document and preserve these histories. The monographs recount the seminal events as told in the voice of the original investigators who provided the crucial early insight. These essays capture the essence of discovery, chronicling the birth of ideas that created new fields of research; and launched trajectories that persisted and ultimately influenced how disease is prevented, diagnosed and treated. In this volume, the Cerami Award Monograph is by Göran K Hansson, MD, PhD, Karolinska Institute. A visionary in the field of cardiovascular research, this is the story of Dr. Hansson’s scientific journey.
I am grateful to all present and former fellows and students in our lab for making it such a great place to work. I am also indebted to many colleagues for stimulating discussions and collaboration, in the Center for Molecular Medicine at Karolinska Institute and all over the world. I gratefully acknowledge the support of the funding agencies that made our research possible. Our work is currently supported by the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation, the European Commission and the Foundation for Strategic Research. Finally, I thank my wife Margareta and our sons Emil and Axel for a wonderful life together.
