Center leader

 

 

Center Leader

Kristian Hveem

Professor Hveem, Center Leader, Group Leader and MD, led the establishment of the state-of-the-art HUNT biobank facility. He has also been instrumental in the design and establishment of the Danish National Biobank at SSI. Hveem brings scientific expertise in cohorts, registries, biobanks, genotyping, data handling and analysis of new genetic variation.

Group Leader of Clinical Translation/Clinical Substudies

Gabrielsen

 

 

 

Research Coordinator

Maiken E. Gabrielsen

Gabrielsen has since 2015 worked as a Research Coordinator. She has a scientific background from Genetic Epidemiology, and has been working with HUNT-data since 2006. She is now responsible for coordinating over 60 studies run by the Jebsen Centre. This includes applications to the ethics committee and data owners for approval and data access. 

Åsvold

 

 

Group Leader

Bjørn Olav Åsvold

Professor Åsvold, MD and an NTNU Outstanding Academic Fellow. His main research areas include endocrine and cardiovascular epidemiology using data from the HUNT Study linked with national health registries. Åsvold brings expertise in epidemiological methodology, in particular the identification of modifiable causes of disease in population and Mendelian randomization approaches.

Group Leader of Mendelian Randomization

 

Brumpton

 

 

Group Leader

Ben Michael Brumpton

Associate Professor Brumptons´ research concerns the use of genetic data and phenotypic information collected from population-based health surveys and electronic health records within epidemiological frameworks to make causal inference. His methodologies also include Mendelian Randomization.

Group Leader of Genetic Epidemiology

Løset

 

 

Group Leader

Mari Løset

Løset, a Postdoctoral Fellow and MD,  works with genetic studies using data from HUNT in combination with regional- and national health registries, and RNA sequencing data from psoriasis-related skin samples. She aims to reveal novel mechanisms for inflammatory skin diseases and to translate these insights into prevention strategies and treatments.

Group Leader of Clinical Transcriptomics

Sætrom

 

 

Group Leader

Pål Sætrom

Professor Sætrom, leader of BioCore and an NTNU Outstanding Academic Fellow, works towards an improved understanding of gene regulation in human disease, bringing extensive experience in both managing and analyzing high dimensional data and in developing tools for integrating these different data types to discover functional genetic variants, relevant for the bioinformatic prioritization.

Group Leader of Bioinformatics + Omics

 

Almaas

 

 

Group Leader

Eivind Almaas

Professor Almaas works towards an improved understanding of systems-level interplay and design principles of metabolic, gene-regulatory, and protein-interaction networks in cells, bringing extensive experience in both complex network analysis and high performance computing.

Group leader of Network Analyses

Giskeødegård




Group Leader

Guro Fanneløb Giskeødegård

Associate Professor Giskeødegård has a PhD in Medical Technology. She was previously a part of the MR Cancer Group, working alongside May-Britt Tessem. Her research is focused on MR spectroscopy of tissue samples and biofluids from breast and prostate cancer patients, and she has a special focus on multivariate data analysis of the MR spectra. Her research goal is to identify biomarkers for improved diagnosis and treatment of breast and prostate cancer.
