Elias Tillandz Prize 2023 Awarded to Scientific Publications in Cancer Research and Archaeology

    This year, the Elias Tillandz Prize was awarded to two outstanding research articles, which involved a mechanism related to the migration of cancer cells and a new analysis of a grave dating back to the early Middle Ages. The Prize was awarded to the researchers at the BioCity symposium on Thursday, 24 August 2023.

    Johanna Ivaska’s research group was awarded for their study of the mechanisms of cell migration and the impact of tissue stiffness on cell location and movement.
