Mohit Kothari, who is one of four enthusiasts who have won an award for his work in solving major and important health challenges. Along with the three other award winners, Mohit Kothari was honored at a ceremony in Vejle yesterday, August 30. Here, Mohit Kothari was awarded a personal honorary gift of DKK 100,000 for his extraordinary research.
Mohit Kothari won the award with a nice statement that he is currently dedicating his research to developing treatment programs that directly benefit patients with late complications from a brain injury. Some of the questions that the new Young Researcher Prize winner is particularly interested in are how to help people with a brain injury regain good oral health and swallowing function, and how to alleviate the many sequelae that have an impact on the quality of life of people who experience late complications after a brain injury.
The Bagger-Sørensen Foundation's Young Researcher Award goes to young researchers under the age of 40 who have made a very special contribution to research. This year it has been awarded to two young researchers. Since 2013, the foundation has been particularly concerned with research, education and information on the spread of oral and dental hygiene and prevention, cure of diabetes and eye diseases, celiac disease, autism and neurofibromatosis.
