So… In the past, I’ve been celebrating my rejects. Lost the count, so stopped partying 🙂
But then this happened: https://www.oulu.fi/biocenter/node/59351!! Basically, we have funding for four years (2020-2023), to hire a postdoc and 2 doctoral students to work on next-generation ways to study musculoskeletal disorders, with a focus on low back pain — at least to begin with!
Huh. In addition to the Co-PI Denzil Ferreira, we have as key collaborators Professor Jaro Karppinen from the PRIMO research group, Professor Markku Timonen (leader of the ELITE research unit), and Chief Medical Officer Esa-Pekka Takala from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.
