In order to stimulate excellent research and draw attention to the hospital's research activity, Oslo University Hospital rewards outstanding publications every half-year.
Six research groups were awarded for their excellent papers published the second half-year of 2020 during a ceremony on June 11th. Each group received NOK 50.000 for use in further research, and the prize winners gave short presentations of their main findings, which are available via YouTube.
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 award winning articles cover a wide range of research that will benefit future patients in the form of improved treatment methods, more precise diagnostics, better follow-up and better understanding of risk factors. It is important for the hospital to highlight and reward outstanding research and praise for the long-term efforts that lie behind it", says Director of Research, Innovation and Education Erlend B. Smeland.
The entire ceremony could be followed directly via web TV, and is available to watch after the event.
