FOT news: The 2024/25 Call for Research Fellowships on Colorectal Cancer opens.

New presidency of the Foundation


The Board of Trustees of the Foundation proceeded to reshuffle the composition of the Presidency, with the appointment of Dr. Joaquim Bellmunt Molins as the new President and Dr. Maria Teresa Solé Pujol as Vice-President.

Dr. Bellmunt, from Sabadell, is a prestigious oncologist recognised both nationally and internationally who works in various centres in the country and combines his activity with the direction of the Bladder Cancer Clinic of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston (USA) and as an associate professor at Harvard University.

The relationship forged with Mr. Josep Bombardó, while he held the presidency of the Foundation, gave him reason to know the objectives of promoting medical and scientific research proposed by the FOT. In 2014 he participated in the scholarship award ceremony, giving the keynote speech. In response to the request made by Josep Bombardó to collaborate with the Foundation and in response to the invitation of the patrons, he accepted the challenge of presiding over the organisation, with the support of the members of the Board of Trustees and the Scientific Committee and especially of Dr. Maite Solé Pujol, who has assumed the Vice-Presidency, forming a solid and prepared team.
