The Torsten Söderberg Academy Professorship in Medicine promotes internationally leading research in the field of medicine by allowing the holders to dedicate themselves to full-time research at a Swedish medical faculty for five years.
The Torsten Söderberg Foundation donates ten million Swedish kronor to each professorship. The professorships are reviewed and decided by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences following a peer review process.
Medical faculties at Swedish universities are contacted by the Academy and are invited to nominate candidates.
Torsten Söderberg Foundation has, together with Ragnar Söderberg Foundation, previously co-financed Söderberg Professorships in medicine and economic sciences.
