    Priset delas ut vid vinterpromotionen 27 januari.

    Fotnot: Björkénska priset har fått sitt namn efter läkaren John Björkén, som efter en framgångsrik karriär donerade all sin kvarlåtenskap till universitetet. Pengarna skulle användas "utan afseende på yrke eller samhällsställning såsom en belöning på framstående forskning eller sådan på vetenskaplig grund hvilande arbeten".

    In my opinion, this award is very well-deserved. Lars Olson has been fighting for decades to develop therapies to regenerate the spinal cord. Congratulations to him. http://www.karolinskafund.com/v2/eng...lars_olson.asp Wise.
