About the group

Our research is primarily focused on:

  1. Perinatal nutrition, encompassing optimalization of nutrition to pregnant women and their offsprings after delivery. Special emphasis is given to small children, in order to improve their growth and cognitive function. A major part of this research takes place in Western-, Southern- and Eastern Africa.
  2. Selective patient-categories with a focus to optimize their nutritional status. Examples include adults undergoing blood stem cell transplantation and adults with refractory epilepsy.
