DKK 100,000 in midwife help for an ERC grant
Health is establishing a funding pool totalling DKK 1.5 million for distribution among 15 researchers who wish to position themselves for an ERC grant. The DKK 100,000 can be used for anything that helps researchers write a good application and the offer is open to everyone – including researchers who do not already have a long CV.

Who is this year's research talent?
Two years ago, Health established a new award targeting junior research talents. Trine Hyrup Mogensen was the first to receive the award named after Nobel Prize winner Jens Christian Skou. Last year Simon Glerup received the award. Now it is time to nominate candidates for this year's award.

More ReAP will benefit everyone
VIDEO: The faculty management team is intensifying its efforts in the fight for external research funding. This means that all applications from DKK 100,000 and above must now be entered in ReAP, the faculty's system for the registration of applications for funding. The goals are an overview of search patterns and to provide better help for those who need it.

Increased follow-up does not benefit colorectal cancer patients
It makes no difference whether colorectal cancer patients are CT-scanned twice or five times in the first three years after surgery. The survival rate after five years is the same – and also better than expected. This is shown by a large Danish/Swedish randomised controlled trial which has been published in the scientific journal JAMA.

From Science to Sales

Over the course of the summer, INside Health will be focusing on some of the entrepreneurial doctors and researchers at Health who might also add ‘developer’ or ‘inventor’ to their business cards. In every newsletter, we offer you a fresh take on how to go from ‘Science to Sales’.

Electric shocks stop people grinding their teeth
