Alumni on top of Veckans Affärers list of 101 Super Talents

Jamal El-Mosleh (Alumni from GIBBS/BIO’06) is on top of Veckans Affärers list of 101 Super Talents (Årets Supertalang). Jamal is the CEO of Immunicum, which develops cancer vaccines.

- “It is an honor to be mentioned on this list, and to top it naturally feels very funny. Personally, I am grateful, but I hope above all that this publicity can help cancer patients”, says Jamal El-Mosleh, who is passionate about his mission to cure cancer.

At the age of 26, Jamal was recruited as the CEO of the new company Immunicum AB in Gothenburg. The company’s patented vaccine is based on over 30 years of research in the field of transplantation immunology and activates the body’s own immune system to attack tumour cells. The company has since its foundation five years ago moved from laboratory tests to currently conduct clinical phase I / II trials in renal cancer patients. To lead such a business requires hard work and knowledge, but also talent. The success of the company puts Jamal on top of Veckans Affärers list of Super Talents, which justifies the award of the following:

”Jamal El-Mosleh has single-handedly driven the company systematically from laboratory and animal studies to human clinical studies and preparation for vaccine production. He has taken the company through three rounds of private financing to an impending IPO, from a single patent to six patent families. He also has the communicative talent to understand complex research context and make them understandable to the general public. ”

Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship sends it´s warm and proud congratulations.
