Aalborg University receives grant for research from US agency  

2004.03.26
The National Institutes of Health has granted DKK 6.1 million to the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction at Aalborg University for pain research

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has granted DKK 6.1 million (USD 1 million) to the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) at Aalborg University for pain research. It is the first time NIH gives overseas research money. The cash will be used for a research project between SMI, the University of Toronto and the Royal Dental College in Aarhus with the dual aim of finding out why women react more strongly to pain than men, and how chronic pain can be relieved.

 

SMI has carried out pain research for several years and has received wide-spread recognition. The most recent research in tension headaches has documented that acupuncture with electronic impulses helps to relieve the pain. As a part of the new collaboration project SMI will extend its research to involve traditional needle acupuncture. The news is reported by regional newspaper Nordjyske.
