Congratulations to NRU junior group leader Mikael Palner who has received 2 years full stipend from the Weimann Foundation for the project "Please Focus! – Dopamine in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder".
The stipend is the so-called "Købmand i Odense Johann og Hanne Weimann født Seedorffs Legat". An abstract from Mikael's project is given below.
NRU, including laboratories, will jointly move to the North Wing Phase II in brand-new facilities. This means that the research unit can be housed together again which will be a great benefit. The move is anticipated to take place Spring 2019, once the construction has been completed.
NRU has received 10 mio DKK from the KFJ Foundation to acquire a brain-dedicated research MR-scanner to be placed in the new North Wing. We are very grateful for their generous gift and look forward to start to use it.
