Mike price Gold Medal Award

The Mike Price Gold Medal is presented biennially by EACR to a senior researcher who has made an exceptional contribution to cancer research in Europe.

We are delighted to announce that the 2014 Mike Price Gold Medal Award will be presented to Professor Harald zur Hausen. Professor zur Hausen will receive the Mike Price Gold Medal and deliver the closing lecture at EACR-23.

Harald-Zur-HausenProfessor zur Hausen was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine in 2008 for his work on the role of papilloma viruses in causing cervical cancer. His research made it possible to develop a vaccine against the third most frequent kind of cancer affecting women.

Harald zur Hausen was born on March 11, 1936 in Gelsenkirchen-Buer, Germany. He studied Medicine at the Universities of Bonn, Hamburg and Düsseldorf and received his M.D. in 1960. After his internship he worked as postdoc at the Institute of Microbiology in Düsseldorf, subsequently in the Virus Laboratories of the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia where he was later appointed as Assistant Professor. After a period of 3 years as a senior scientist at the Institute of Virology of the University of Würzburg, he was appointed in 1972 as Chairman and Professor of Virology at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. In 1977 he moved to a similar position to the University of Freiburg. From 1983 until 2003 he was appointed as Scientific Director of the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum (German Cancer Research Center) in Heidelberg. He retired from this position in 2003.
