Prissumman delas lika mellan de båda stipendiaterna.  

"Dr Soham Gupta is awarded for outstanding research of cross talk between innate immune signaling and metabolic pathways du ring viral infections. Through his research Dr Gupta is expanding the knowledge of the interplay between viruses and host immune-metabolic system using an integrated approach with combinations of multi-omics, immunology and molecular- and cell biology techniques."

"Dr Christopher Tibbitt is awarded for his excellent work on innate lymphoid cells and how metabolic changes affect their functions. Using human tissues, animal models and advanced technologies, Dr. Tibbitt is deciphering the function of these cells in health and in cancer, and how reprogramming of cell metabolism might be used to boost immune therapy in cancer treatment."
