Prof. Paul Basset

The European Cancer Center awards the Paul Basset Medal for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the Eucc.

The first Paul Basset Laureate is Prof. Dr. Jean-Paul Obrecht, Director emeritus of the Department of Internal Medicinen/Oncology of the Kantonsspital Basel. His initiative and dedication have contributed decisively to the founding and continuation of the EuCC.

Die Paul Basset Medal will be awarded to Prof. Obrecht on May 16, 2003 at the 10th EuCC Symposium in Freiburg.

The Paul Basset Medal and Award are dedicated to the late Prof. Paul Basset, former Director of the Institut de Chimie Biologique Strasbourg University.

In addition, the EuCC bestowes the Paul Basset Award at the annual EuCC symposium for the best presentation by a junior scientist (£ 35 years).
The Paul Basset Awards is dotated with € 500.
