PAWS-GIST awarded the National Cancer Research Institute’s Collaboration excellence award 2019!

We are really excited to announce that our PAWS GIST (Paediatric Adolescent Wild-type & Syndromic GIST) alliance has been awarded the National Cancer Research Institute‘s “Collaboration award”.

This award recognises our unique European multidisciplinary team of patients, doctors, specialists and researchers who are collaborating to improve treatments and working to find a cure for PAWS-GIST cancer. The nominations were reviewed and shortlisted by an independent panel, with representatives of the NCRI Partners and the NCRI Cancer Conference Scientific Committee.

Dr Iain Frame, CEO of NCRI said:

“We are delighted to recognise and honour the achievements made by these individuals and teams who have worked effortlessly in the community to help accelerate progress in cancer research for the benefit of patients and society”.

Dr Frame continued:

“We received many high-quality submissions and the panel had a tough decision to make but they felt the shortlisted entries matched all criteria, often surpassing expectations”.

The Awards will be presented on Monday 4th November at the NCRI Cancer Conference in Glasgow.
