MedIm Travel and Research grant

Nina Eide Hasselberg was awarded a MedIm Travel and Research grant of 50 000 NOK.

Poster: Global lognitudial strain detects reduced exercise capacity and reduced systolic function in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction

As part of her PhD-project at Oslo University Hospital, they have already involved Rennes University Hospital in a clinical project on imaging and risk prediction in patients receiving CRT. So far this collaboration between Rennes and Oslo University Hospital, led by Nina as PI, has produced an oral abstract presented by Nina at the ESC as well as accepted abstracts to be presented at AHA 2013 and EuroEcho 2013.  With the grant Nina wants to go to Rennes to do a training visit at the cardiology department. She wants to work on and expand the ongoing CRT-project collaboration. Hopefully a visit to Rennes University Hospital will also open for further international collaborations between the two departments in the future.

 

About MedIm

The 5th National PhD Conference in Medical Imaging was arranged in Tromsø 2-3 October 2013. Close to ninety PhD-fellows presented their research, either by oral presentation or poster. In addition, forty supervisors, researchers and research leaders participated at the conference. One of the most popular features was the picture exhibition.

MedIm promotes research training at a top international level within the field of medical imaging in Norway. The Research School is based on a network combining prominent research groups nationwide, based both at universities, university hospitals, SINTEF and industry with high-standard development & research activities.

MedIm is funded through an 8-year grant from the Research Council of Norway.

The host institution of MedIm is the Faculty of Medicine, NTNU.
