A3P Biomedical has formed a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), comprised of scientific and clinical leaders in urology and oncology, and chaired by professor Per-Anders Abrahamsson, former Secretary General of the European Association of Urology (EAU). The SAB will provide expertise and counsel to management in strengthening the clinical evidence and health economic benefits of Stockholm3 and advancing the global implementation, with initial focus on Europe.
“I am delighted to Chair A3P Biomedical’s Scientific Advisory Board, and to be part of such a distinguished group of scientific and clinical experts. Stockholm3 already has a strong scientific foundation with more than 75,000 men included in prospective clinical studies and has the potential of becoming an important tool in reducing mortality and overdiagnosis in prostate cancer,” says Per-Anders Abrahamsson.
“The prestigious group of thought leaders who have joined our Scientific Advisory Board will provide A3P Biomedical with strategic expertise and access to international key opinion leaders in the months and years ahead, as we continue our mission of improving men’s health by implementing Stockholm3 for early detection of prostate cancer,” says David Rosén, CEO at A3P Biomedical.
