HUNT3 - The Nord-Trøndelag Health Study
HUNT3 (2006-2008) collected information among residents in Nord-Trøndelag who were 13 and older. The collected material is used in medical and social science research. HUNT3 was also a simple health check for each participant.
Clinical observations and interviews were done with each participant, as well as numerous additional studies.
All the measurement data and self-report data is stored in HUNT Databank.
Biological material collected in HUNT3 includes blood of adults, urine sample from a selected group and DNA of youth. The collecting of biological material has been the biggest investment made in HUNT3, and is stored in HUNT Biobank.

Our purpose here at HUNT is to facilitate research leading to new knowledge about public health. Researchers associated with Norwegian institutions can apply for access to HUNT material. Researchers from other countries are welcome to apply in cooperation with a Norwegian Principle Investigator. The research projects must be approved by an ethics committee. See below for an overview of the project process.
