Professor Bob Pinedo, member of the CTMM Supervisory Board, has been awarded with the K. Dornbush Award 2012.

We congratulate Prof. dr. Bob Pinedo, member of the CTMM Supervisory Board, who has been awarded with the K. Dornbush Award 2012 by the Netherlands-America Foundation.

The ceremony will take place during the annual Gala Awards Dinner on May 11 in Arlington, Virginia.

The award is named after former U.S. ambassador in the Netherlands, Terry Dornbush and is intended for a person who strengthened the relationship between the two countries in the field of philanthropy, education and culture.

"Professor Pinedo is not only distinguished for his role in the training of doctors, but also for his leading role in the fight against cancer in both the U.S. and the Netherlands," said Dornbush. The Netherlands-America Foundation wants to strengthen the bond between the ten million Americans of Dutch origin and the Netherlands.
