Specialhospitalets forskere har deltaget i at publicere en række artikler med forskningsresultater i videnskabelige tidsskrifter. Du kan se et udsnit af de seneste publikationer.

Resultater fra forskningsprojekter publiceres oftest i artikler i internationale forskningstidsskrifter. Vi har således sammen med vores forskellige samarbejdspartnere taget del i at udgive en række af sådanne artikler. Se et udsnit her:
