The Leo Pharma Research Foundation Awards are presented annually to researchers overseeing cutting-edge work in the field of skin science. This year, Dr Amaya Viros and Dr Thomas Wiesner have been named as the gold and silver winners, respectively.

“Leo Pharma has announced the two winners of this year's Leo Pharma Research Foundation Awards.“

Dr Viros will receive a grant of one million Danish kroner (115,500 pounds) based on her pioneering work in describing mechanisms behind the development of squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Her future research will focus on skin cancer and ageing.

Meanwhile, Dr Wiesner will receive 500,000 kroner in recognition of his efforts to find new mechanism-based cancer therapies, with the money supporting his further attempts to define relevant genomic and epigenomic aberrations underpinning skin cancer.

The winners will be formally presented with their awards at the European Society for Dermatological Research's annual meeting in Munich on September 8th.
