Digestive Cancers Europe would like to make a call to all Full Members with projects in colorectal cancer (CRC) to apply for our annual Wolfram Nolte Memorial Award by 15 October 2022. The prize of €5.000 awaits the winning project!
The award was established in 2019 in the name of the late Wolfram Nolte, a dear friend to many at DiCE and a metastatic CRC (mCRC) patient who was very active for many years in raising awareness, improving patient education and sharing his experience.
