Dr. Manel Esteller, Award for Innovation in the Healthcare Field in Oncology


Manel Esteller, Director of the Epigenetics and Cancer Biology Program at IDIBELL, ICREA Researcher and Professor of Genetics at the University of Barcelona, is the recipient of the Innovation Award in the Healthcare Field in Oncology, awarded by the Celgene Chair of Innovation in Health and the University of Alcalá. The award was given yesterday in Madrid at the Royal National Academy of Medicine.


The recognition is granted due to the research of Dr. Manel Esteller in the area of metastasis of unknown origin, where his research has led to the development of an epigenomic test to diagnose the primary tumor that originated them. This analysis, called EPICUP, is used clinically in cancer patients affected by this disease.
