The Research Unit of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (RUGO) is part of the department D of Gynaecology and Obstetrics at Odense University Hospital.
We perform clinical and translational research in order to diminish the burden of diseases among the females consulting us for various reasons. Gynaecology and obstetrics is a wide speciality ranging from infertility, pregnancy related diseases, bleeding disorders, urinary incontinence to cancer. The speciality is divided into several sub-specialities in different research areas and traditions. Despite the differences we are all focused on elucidating and improving the clinical challenges related to our speciality. Our research is performed both in the developed as well as in the developing countries.

Females are walking in and out of our specialty for various reasons during their whole life span. Therefore, we have many options to intervene which is one major reason for making the obesity pandemic a focus area for all parts of our research unit. We will continue our contribution to decreasing the obesity pandemi via research, conferences and seminars.

RUGO has expanded exceptionally during the last couple of years and this has many explanations. We have received tremendous support from OUH and the Clinical Institute at SDU allowing us to establish a brand new physical research unit and attach professors, guest professors, post docs as well as PhD students.

However, our research could not be performed without our patients and healthy controls. These are the real heroes and cannot be thanked enough.
