Marte Bjørk arbeider hovedsakelig med populasjonsbaserte undersøkelser på mennesker med nevrologiske sykdommer. Hun undersøker blant annet hvordan mors epilepsisykdom påvirker graviditet, fødsel og barnets videre utvikling. Hun er også involvert i forskning på bakenforliggende årsaker til migreneanfall gjennom bruk av nevrofysiologiske metoder. 

Hovedveileder for 2 PhD kandidater innenfor nevroepidemiologi. Bedside undervisning av medisinstudenter innenfor klinisk nevrologi.
