My research addresses the connection between our environment, our genes and our health.
My research centers on prevention of so called non-communicable diseases. They include most cancers, autoimmune diseases, most heart diseases, allergy and asthma etc. These disorders have in common that they are connected to both genetics and environmental exposures, they are often chronic and can affect us at any time point in life.
You can find more information about my work on my research-group page.
I am co-responsible for the course: Molecular Epidemiology, given once a year. The course centers on how molecular and epidemiological methods can be used to understand biological processes and infer disease mechanisms. Different ‘Omics’ technologies (e.g. genomics, epigenetics and proteomics) are also covered as part of the course.
