The Clinical Research Programme will strengthen clinical research by giving priority both to supporting large clinical trials, and by ensuring adequate focus on national needs and priorities relating to targeted competence-building.
Norwegian R&D institutions, in all areas, can now apply for travel support and coverage of conference participation costs for female researchers from the South.
More women than men develop chronic low back pain and sciatica. The explanation may lie with a gene variant that plays into the body’s pain regulation.
Why do some people recover quickly from lower back pain while others suffer for much longer periods? Genetics may play a role.
Norwegian biobanks are a world-class research resource. The Research Council of Norway is launching a new programme for research on human biobanks and health data.
Norway has top-notch research groups in biology, medicine and health sciences, but they would benefit from making even better use of the national health registries and biobanks. Norwegian research related to aquaculture also has a very sound framework for activities.
