Karl-Johan Malmberg, head of the "Natural Killer Cell Biology and Cell Therapy" group at the Department of Cancer Immunology, has recently been awarded a prestigious “FRIPRO Toppforsk” grant from the Research Council for the project "Programming natural killer cell function through the organelle communication". 

The Norwegian government is aiming for long-term efforts to build research communities on the highest level. In total 24 Norwegian projects, all disciplines included, receive between 15 and 25 mill NOK. The grants are aimed at research communities that have the potential to become international leaders within their fields.

Two of the 24 selected projects are led by group leaders at the Institute for Cancer Research. The other is Tor Erik Rusten from the Department of Molecular Cell Biology.
