Our group focuses on epidemiologic studies on causes for diseases, particular social and lifestyle factors.

 We use data from health registries like the Norwegian Medical Birth Registry, the Cancer Registry of Norway, the Norwegian Prescription database, the Cause of Death Registry, the National Multiple Sclerosis Registry, Norwegian Patient Registry and Statistics Norway.

 Central sources for studies are large population based surveys like The Hordaland Health Studies, The Cardiovascular Disease in Norway– CVDNOR  and The Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study.  

 Important aspects of our group are its multidisciplinary element and its focus on epidemiological methods
