As the Faculty of Medicine steadily continues its positive development, the position of vice dean takes on more strategic key duties that require increasing involvement going forward. Thomas Graven-Nielsen has had an ongoing desire to devote more energy to the Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain (CNAP) and thus to withdraw from the management at the Faculty of Medicine. This includes the positions of vice dean and deputy head of department at the Department of Health Science and Technology, which I have accepted.
Thomas Graven-Nielsen is with good reason a very sought after and busy professor whose efforts at the Faculty of Medicine are invaluable. I completely understand Thomas wanting to devote himself entirely to his position as head of the center of excellence. This is an incredibly important area for the entire faculty, and I of course fully support the decision.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Thomas for his outstanding efforts and I look forward to continued collaborative work.
As of the end of September, the area will be handled by me for the time being.
