Randi J. Bertelsen, MSc PhD, is a researcher at the Department of Clinical Science at the University of Bergen. She has a background within evolutionary biology and ecology (MSc) from the University of Bergen and from Environmental Medicine and Epidemiology from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and University of Oslo (PhD). In 2010 she received Voksentoppen Research Award within paediatric allergology and pulmonology awarded for outstanding research within paediatric respiratory medicine and allergology. In 2018 she received Kronprins Haakons research award for asthma and allergy. Her research interests are focused on environmental exposure, microbiome and asthma and allergy. Her Young Research Talent grant (RCN-funded) focused on exposure to antibacterial chemicals, oral microbiome and lung health. Bertelsen is currently PI for two large 5-year research projects with funding from the Research Council of Norway (BetterHealth-program) from 2018 to 2023 and the European Research Council (ERC); starting grant project "BRuSH" (2019-2023). The topic of her ongoing research concerns how bacteria that produce particularly potent proinflammatory lipid As (the component responsible for inflammation in the host) affects lung health and disease over time. 

Bertelsen is currently PI and biobank manager for RHINESSA Bergen (www.rhinessa.net). Bertelsen is also affiliated with the Oral Health Center of Expertise (TK Vest Hordaland), and with Dept of Occupational Medicine, Haukeland University Hospital. She is appointed member in the National Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics (NEM) by the Ministry of Education and Research, Associate editor of International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health. Bertelsen is member of the Management Committee for COST Action CA18131 (2019-2023): Statistical and machine learning techniques in human microbiome studies, and member of the Scientific advisory board of the Leibniz ScienceCampus Evolutionary Medicine of the Lung (EVOLUNG) http://evolung.fz-borstel.de/

Bertelsen has a successful track record for research funding with a Research Council of Norway (RCN) Personal Postdoctoral Grant, U.S.-Norway Fulbright Foundation for Educational Exchange Fellowship, the Norwegian Asthma- and Allergy Foundation, RCN Young Research Talent grant, RCN Research Project from 2017 (BEDREHELSE), and ERC Starting Grant 2018.
