The young researcher has been awarded for his study of non-invasive techniques for the diagnosis of multiple myeloma carried out at the Cima University of Navarra and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Specifically, we have shown that there is a direct correlation between their issue and worse survival fees ," said Dr. Garcés, who is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York (USA).
