The annual Paper Awards session of the Research Theme Tumors of the Digestive Tract took place at the 22nd of April. The selected candidates prepared wonderful informative movies, that were judged by the public of the RRR and by our patient representatives.
Nelleke Brouwer won first prize for her work on the impact of the primary location of colorectal cancer on the development of metastases. Yonne Peters, with her study on the e-Nose in Barrett’s oesophagus was first runner-up and won the first ever patient award of our Theme.
