Stine Kjær Urhøj

Stine Kjær Urhøj

Ph.d.-studerende

I'm affiliated with the Perinatal, Obstetric, and Pediatric Epidemiology (POPE) research group at Section of Social Medicine.

My primary research focus is perinatal and pediatric epidemiology and epidemiological methods and I'm particularly interested in how conditions during pregnancy and early life influence the health of the child and the mother.

In my doctoral thesis I examine the relationship between the father’s age at conception and the health of the offspring, an association hypothesized to be influenced by paternal gene expression, which can be mutated as a result of the age of the father. The project is a population-based register study using Danish nation-wide registers as well as data from birth cohorts from Denmark and Norway.  

Additionally, I'm involved in the EURO-PERISTAT project, a research-based EU-funded indicator project on perinatal health in Europe, where I have accomplished the Danish contribution to the project in 2013.

I am a member of several councils, boards, committees and networks including the PhD Study Board at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH, the Steering Group for the Research Education Program in Epidemiology and Public Health, UCPH, the PhD-KUFIR (University of Copenhagen’s Research and Innovation Council) and KUPE (University of Copenhagen's PhD Erfa Group).
