Award ceremony December 7th Oslo University Hospital awards 6 excellent articles for the first half-year of 2018

In order to stimulate excellent research and draw attention to the hospital's extensive research activity, Oslo University Hospital reward outstanding publications regularly. 

Six research groups were awarded for their excellent papers published during the first half-year of 2018 on December 7th in the large auditorium at Ullevål sykehus. Each group received NOK 50.000 for use in further research. The prize winners gave short presentations of the main findings in their respective articles.

Every half-year, six of the very best papers authored by scientists working on the hospital (first or last author must be affiliated to OUS) are selected. The nomination takes place through the research panel of each division. The final selection process is performed by an external committee.

Each year around 2000 scientific papers from the hospital's researchers are published, and up to 25 of them are nominated twice a year.  The six selected articles are of especially high quality, and they present important finding on both-short and long-term scales. The works reflect the good quality and the interdisciplinarity that characterises several research environments at Oslo University Hospital. The research is a fundamental condition for the institution to maintain and strenghten the quality in the patient treatment.

The half-yearly article award ceremony has become an important tradition that both presents a selection of the very best papers published at the hospital and at the same time acknowledges outstanding research milieus. The selected articles have been through a very thorough selection process and represent long-term work that is based on broad cooperation, both internally and internationally. The results presented in the articles are very important and will contribute to better understanding of various diseases and be of importance to future diagnosis and treatment. We are incredibly proud of the impressive quality and broad range of research at Oslo University Hospital, says Director of Research, Innovation and Education Erlend B. Smeland.
