14 November 2017: 1st Annual Research Meeting at the Department of Clinical Medicine

Dear colleague,

The 1st Annual Research Meeting at the Department of Clinical Medicine will be held at Aarhus University Hospital – Skejby on November 14, 2017 from 3.30 p.m. – 8.00 p.m. All employees –irrespective of seniority and training background are welcome– free of charge. It is our hope and expectation that hundreds of researchers will attend and participate.

The Department of Clinical Medicine is a very large organization and many of its affiliated researchers may not be aware of the work that their colleagues are conducting. We have therefore organised the 1st Annual Research Meeting in order to showcase a broad selection of the extensive research activities taking place within the Department of Clinical Medicine. It is our hope that this event will stimulate collaboration between research groups at the department.

At the 1st Annual Research Meeting at the Department of Clinical Medicine, there will be 3 types of presentations:

I.     Invited talks by senior researchers. Confirmed speakers:

  • Professor Ole Mors “240+ million DKK spent - Lessons learnt from the largest Danish psychiatric research project to date
  • Professor Tobias Wang “Clinical benefits from Zoophysiology: Pythons as an alternative animal model to study the transition from fasting to binge-feeding
  • Professor Hans Erik Bøtker “Remote Ischemic Conditioning
  • Professor Jørgen Frøkiær “Bridging basic biomedical research with clinical medicine
  • Professor Therese Ovesen “Keys to establish a research unit in the "wild" West

II. 3-minute “flash talks” in the auditorium (selected based on abstract submission)

III. Poster presentations (selected based on abstract submission – posters presented at other conferences are more than welcome)

The poster session will be very informal and accompanied by a light meal and drinks. The researchers giving the best flash talk and presenting the best poster will receive an award following the poster session.


Please register (registration is compulsory if you wish to attend the meeting) for the meeting and submit your abstract for a flash talk or poster presentation here.

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is Friday September 15th, 2017.

Please join us of for the 1st Annual Research Meeting at the Department of Clinical Medicine, which will hopefully become an annually returning event.

Best wishes from
Kristjar Skajaa, Head of Department
