The American Association of Cancer Research has awarded Dr. Josep Maria Llovet of the IDIBAPS Liver Cancer team with the 2009 Landon Foundation - AACR INNOVATOR Award for International Collaboration in Cancer Research. This prestigious award provides funding for large lines of collaborative research in cancer.

The translational research group led by Dr. Llovet is a paradigm of collaboration in network, as it takes part in many initiatives, such as the CIBER on Liver and Digestive Diseases (CIBERehd) and the HCC Genomic Project international consortium. Dr. Llovet himself combines his responsibilities as professor of ICREA research at the IDIBAPS and as director of the HCC Research Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
