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 will be awarded for their excellent papers published the first half-year of 2022 during a ceremony on December 7th. Each group received NOK 50.000 for use in further research, and the prize winners gave short presentations of their main findings.
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 show a great thematic breadth. Among the winners, we find important contributions to new knowledge about the prevention of food allergies in children, risk factors in the treatment of high cholesterol, the connection between prison conditions and mortality, trials of anti-opioids, the role of the immune system in the gut and innovative strategies for the development of antibody-based medicines. It is worth pointing out that two projects are linked to research on particularly vulnerable social groups: drug addicts and prisoners" says Director of Research, Innovation and Education Erlend B. Smeland, who presented the awards.
