Honorary Doctors at the Sahlgrenska Academy

Madeleine Olsson Eriksson, born 1945, licensed physician, chairman of Sten A Olssons stiftelse för forskning och kultur.

She has initiated several donations to Sahlgrenska Academy over the past few years, including funding for new centers for research and professional skills development in the field of neuropsychiatry and spinal injuries, funding for positions as visiting professors for nationally and internationally leading researchers, and funding for a number of individual projects such as The Culture and Brain Health Initiative, Alzheimer – Living conditions – Genetics, the Amble project and projects in tumor biology.

A large donation also made it possible to build the Stone house at Ågrenska, a platform for long-term research and development for care, housing and treatment forms for persons with rare diagnoses which often include severe functional impairments.

Helen von Sydow, born 1952, licensed physician, board member of Stiftelsen Erik & Lily Philipsons minnesfond, and Oscar von Sydow, born 1950, ship broker, chairman of Stiftelsen Fru Mary von Sydows, född Wijk, donationsfond.

The couple initiated a long-term investment in summer research, launched in 2005, for students at Sahlgrenska Academy’s medical program. The project has been financed by Stiftelsen Fru Mary von Sydows, född Wijk, donationsfond and, from 2008 onward, also by Stiftelsen Erik & Lily Philipsons minnesfond.

The aim is to encourage future doctors to get involved with research early on in their careers and ensure that the necessary expertise exists in the field in the future. The summer research scholarships have helped improve the quality of the medical program’s theses and raised interest in research among students.
