Perinatal, Obstetric & Paediatric Epidemiology (POPE)

The research group is conducting epidemiologic research, mainly focused on maternal, child and adolescent health. Additionally, the research group examines how conditions during pregnancy and early life influence the health of the child later in life.

The group holds special interest in the ways of which health and health trajectories are impacted by social and environmental conditions from fetal life over childhood and adolescence to early adulthood.

Key words of our research are: social patterning of disease – birth cohorts - developmental origin of health and disease – mental health in children and youth – outdoor environment – indoor environment – preterm birth – eating disorders – migrant reproductive health – spinal pain – congenital anomalies - infections.

The specific projects within the research group:

























































In 2020 the group hosted a seminar about the importance and future of cohort studies where epidemiologists from all over the world took part. Among the speakers were epidemiologists who were currently or had previously collaborated with the research group.
