Human aging and development

At the research unit of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Biodemography (EBB) we study human development and aging and the link between them, using data from large Danish population-based surveys.
The Danish health registers and The Danish Twin Registry are valuable resources in the study of gene-environment interactions in human development and aging. 

Our research is primarily within the two focus areas: Aging and twin research 

From uterus to old age

We are engaged in cross-disciplinary research teams that combine methods from epidemiology, genetics, statistics, bioinformatics and demography.


Collaboration is important if we are to achieve the goals we set for research, education and knowledge exchange. Therefore, EBB cooperates with both internal and external partners.
