The South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst) aims to profile ongoing excellent research in the region by calling special attention to a "Scientist of the Month".
For the month of May 2013, this honor goes to Guttorm Haraldsen from the Department of Pathology at the Division of Diagnostics and Intervention at Oslo University Hospital.
Research is an area of commitment for the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority, which spends a total of 1.4 thousand million NOK on research every year.
From the web pages of South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (in Norwegian):
- Skal lede nytt senter for betennelsesforskning (translated to "Will be directing new centre for inflammation" - popular scientific presentation of Haraldsen's work, in Norwegian.)
From the introduction: "An inflammation is not the same as an infection, contrary to popular belief, says researcher of the month Guttorm Haraldsen, head of research at the Division of Diagnostics and Intervention. He will now direct the new K.B. Jebsen centre for inflammation research, a task he is looking forward to."
