2004 Salivary Research Award to Ekstrom

Honolulu, Hawaii...Professor Jorgen Ekstrm is the recipient of the 2004 Salivary Research Award from the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening here today for its 82nd General Session. The award was designed to stimulate and recognize outstanding and innovative achievements that have contributed to the basic understanding of salivary gland structure, secretion, and function, or salivary composition and function.

Professor Ekstrm received his MD degree in 1966, and his PhD degree in physiology in 1975, from Lund University, Malm, Sweden. He now holds the positions of Professor and Chair in Pharmacology, Medical Faculty, Gteborg University, and Deputy Head of the Institute of Physiology and Pharmacology, Sahlgrenska Academy at Gteborg University, Sweden. He is a member of several major research associations and societies, and has served as Editor of the Journal of Physiology and other research publications. He has published 136 research papers, as well as reviews, book chapters, proceedings, and a patent.

Professor Ekstrm has dedicated his scientific career to unraveling the mysteries of autonomic nerve activities in salivary glands, thereby contributing to the understanding of the control of salivary secretion and related functions. He has made outstanding original contributions to these fields of enquiry. He commenced his research career in 1967 as a PhD student in the laboratory of Professor Emmelin at Lund University. Over the years, salivary glands served as the primary model organ in his studies aimed at gaining insight into autonomic neurotransmission mechanisms and their plasticity, and into how these mechanisms exert short-term effects (secretion and blood flow) as well as long-term effects (receptor sensitivity, metabolism and growth) on the glands.

His work has taken him into the realms of the interactions between the different nerves in salivary glandular function and to the effects of denervations, no
