The jury pointed out the solidity of his scientific career, both in education and healthcare, as well as his professional career, being a lecturer and trainer of a great number of specialists in medical oncology.
Juan Jesús Cruz Hernández, Endowed Professorship of Oncology in the University of Salamanca, got the new Castile and Leon Award for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation 2016.
His tireless fight against cancer made him deserving of this prestigious award that makes the University of Salamanca very proud.
I know that professor Cruz is an optimist who fights courageously with this disease. Despite the great incidence of cancer, mortality rates have decreased due to the relentless work of researchers and lecturers.
The hard work he put into converting oncological research so that is could be of service to patients, the creation of the first healthcare units and researchers of genetic counselling, have been the decisive factors at the time of granting the award. All this resulted in Castile and Leon becoming an important place in the fight against cancer.
My heartfelt congratulations Professor!
