CMT welcomes new board member Johanna Olweus

Johann Olweus, PhD MD, is head of the Department of Cancer Immunology at the Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital and Professor at the University of Oslo.  During her residency at the Institute for Immunology at Oslo University Hospital Rikshospitalet, Dr. Olweus became interested in HLA-typing and workups in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and that T cells from healthy donors can be very powerful at eradicating cancer cells in patients. This led to her interest in using various modalities of donor-derived immunity in cancer immunotherapy.
