Once again, a young SCON researcher was successful in the Wiley-Blackwell Journal of Oral Rehabilitation/IADR Neuroscience Young Investigator competition for best research poster. Fernando Exposto, Aarhus University, was awarded second prize in the postdoctoral category.
The poster competition was held at the IADR meeting in San Francisco, March 23, 2017. Congratulations Fernando!

SCON projects had great success when the Stockholm Community Council (SLL)/Karolinska Institutet (KI) grants for clinical dental research projects (SOF-grants) 2016-2018 were approved.
The projects should involve collaborations between the Department of Dental Medicine, KI and dental care providers in Stockholm, such as the County Council Dental Care and/or private dental care. Projects that interact with other strong research environment/s in Stockholm (e.g. at Karolinska Institutet, the Royal School of Technology, Stockholm University etc.) are given priority, as well as projects involving PhD students or post docs. Support can be granted up to three years, with a possibility of extension.
Out of a total 25 applications, 10 projects received SEK 450 000 per year. Of these, 4 were SCON projects.
The following projects were funded:
Sensory-motor regulation of human chewing and biting behavior in painful orofacial conditions
Significance of peripheral biomarkers and polymorphisms in the serotonergic system
Prediction of disease activity and temporomandibular joint involvement in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis
Sensorimotor control and relearning of mastication in oral rehabilitation
We are seeking partners for six research projects in Oral medicine, Orofacial pain and Prosthodontics. The funding partners can contribute with researchers who also will have the possibility to apply and be admitted to the full Ph D programme at Aarhus University, Malmö University or Karolinska Institutet.
The SCON Memorandum of Agreement is now available on the website.
From today, Maria Pigg (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the new webmaster for the SCON world-wide network website.
