Bob Weinberg receives Inspire2Live Patient Advocate Hero of Cancer Award

Inspire2Live is proud to award Bob Weinberg with the ‘Inspire2Live Patient Advocate Hero of Cancer Award’ for his merits to put patients first. The prize was awarded during our 2020 Annual Congress.

This award is given to a clinician or researcher that has done important work that improves the quality of life of cancer patients and their loved ones. It’s our way of saying ‘Thank you very much for your contribution to patients’. The work of the heroes means that they have the patient in mind when doing their work and when living their mission.

Hero of cancer

Bob Weinberg is well known for his work on the biology of cancer. His famous article about the hallmarks of cancer has helped a lot of other researchers in their work and has improved the quality of treatments. Working in the field of cancer research and treatments means that his book ‘The biology of cancer’ has been read and is on your bookshelf. ‘It starts with knowing what’s going on’. This was also the title of his lecture at our Annual Congress.

Inspire2Live is proud but even more grateful to have this hero in our community. We’re convinced that his work will continue to contribute to patients in the future and near future.
