Six research environments received 50,000 Norwegian Kroner each, earmarked for further research. Harmonie Perdreau-Dahls winning article about the maturation of heart muscle cells during development was published in Circulation Research in May 2023.
“The winning articles demonstrate that OUS (Oslo University Hospital) makes significant contributions to understanding processes in disease development and improving diagnosis and treatment”, says Research Director Erlend Smeland, who presented the awards.
The prizes for outstanding research articles are awarded twice a year based on over 2,400 scientific articles generated annually from OUS. The research committees of the clinics nominate the articles, and an external committee evaluates and ultimately selects the six deserving winners.
The winning articles are expected to have achieved international impact or distinguished themselves in other ways. It is also required that the articles maintain exceptionally high quality and convey important findings.
