The research at the institute is undertaken by 11 units and centers - often cooperating ' in house' as well as with partners outside the university. The researchers analyze ill-health and health taking into consideration patients, population and society.
The Danish Twin Registry, amongst others, is often used in various analyses. Furthermore we conduct research in pharmaceuticals and in the effect and mechanism of action of other foreign substances; we analyze the use of resources in the Danish health system along with the quality of the services offered. Finally we conduct research in the gray zone between citizen, patient and the health care system with improvement of human health in mind.
Research at The Institute of Public Health spans from the study of cells to socio-economics and we are only happy to cross existing professional boundaries in order to create coherence in treatment and prevention.
