In Denmark, we have unique opportunities to explore health in a life course perspective - from youth to old age - using data from our large population surveys.


From uterus to old age

We study how living conditions can affect health both in the earliest parts of life and at the end of life’s spectrum. The goal is to identify genetic and environmental factors that are important for health, aging and longevity.
