NDA Research Grantees for 2021 announced

For the second consecutive year, the Nordic Dermatology Association (NDA) research grant was announced and open for application between Aug 1 and Oct 10, 2021, exclusively for residents or recently approved specialists in dermatology and venereology.

NDA research committee received 11 applications concerning interesting research projects from Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, but none from Norway and Iceland.  All applications were evaluated by the research committee based on their clinical and scientific relevance and feasibility.  

The research projects involved a broad spectrum of topics, but few included Nordic collaboration. Based on the evaluations, the board decided to split the 60,000 SEK research grant between two applicants, who were given 30,000 SEK each:

  • Laura Krogh Herlin, Denmark: Ectodermal dysplasia in Denmark
  • Sinja Kristiansen, Sweden: HPV in invasive penile cancer and risk factors and treatment for penile intraepithelial neoplasia

All applicants have been given feedback from the committee concerning their research projects and applications.

The NDA board and research committee congratulate the grantees!
