Event on 10 June 2015: Prof. Dr. Børresen-Dale

Prof. Dr. Børresen-Dale

(PhD, MD (h.c.), Head of Department of Genetics, Director of The K.G. Jebsen Center for Breast Cancer Research, Oslo University) is among the leading geneticists in research on molecular biology of breast cancer, her group pioneered expression profiling of breast carcinomas in collaboration with groups at Stanford, demonstrating that breast cancer can be divided into distinct sub- groups with differences in molecular profiles and in overall and relapse-free survival. Her achievements are seminal for understanding breast cancer evolution, and have had an enormous impact on our view of the complexity of breast cancer. Her current research projects focus on ‘Exploring the Systems Biology of Breast Cancer’ using high dimensional data in integrated approaches aiming at identification of genotypes and gene expression profiles contributing to elevated cancer risk, radiation sensitivity, tumor aggressiveness and therapy resistance. She has authored more than 450 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and invited reviews.

Professor Børresen-Dale has received several prizes and awards, inter alia the Swiss Bridge Award for outstanding Cancer Research in 2004, the Møbius Prize for Outstanding Research in 2008, and, most recently, the Helmholtz International Fellow Award. In addition to her scientific merits, she is an active member of various national and international boards, e.g. the Board of Directors of the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) and European Association of Cancer Research (ECCO), is Past President of the European Association of Cancer Research (EACR), and is Elected Member of The Royal Academy of Science, Norway, The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the European Academy of Cancer Sciences. Since 2010 and 2013 respectively, she is an exceptionally dedicated member of the Scientific Advisory Boards of the DKFZ and the DKTK.
