Earlier this month, Professor and Consultant Karen-Lise Garm Spindler was honoured by the William Nielsens Foundation at an event held at Sorø Art Museum. She was presented with the foundation's personal award of DKK 75,000 for her perseverance in advancing the treatment of patients with intestinal cancer. 

A focal point of Karen-Lise Garm Spindler’s research has been the development of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and in recent years, she has also conducted research on how so-called liquid biopsies – a type of tests in which cancer can be traced using a simple blood test – may be used in future cancer treatment.
