Section of Environmental Health

The section carries out basic research on environment and health throughout the life course, with methods ranging from experimental models to register-based epidemiology. The priority of the section is to contribute to future public health and prevention with original research and training of talented researchers.

The overall objective of the section is to generate new knowledge and awareness of the importance of the environment for public health through research, education, and knowledge dissemination.








The Section is organized into 3 research units/groups

The Unit of Medical Psychology
The Unit of Medical Psychology does research and teaching in a broad range of topics in the fields of psychology that are particularly relevant for medicine and other health sciences.
Research Group Leader: Associate Professor Trine Flensborg-Madsen
