We are an inter-disciplinary research group sharing commonality in the use of epidemiological methods for advancing our understanding of health-determining factors in various fields. The group has a main focus within public health, environmental medicine and reproductive epidemiology. Interest areas include environmental exposures, health care utilization, register-based research and the development of new and existing epidemiological methods. The group is an active part within a large international collaborative network in reproductive medicine, ReproUnion, and also has years of experience using large Swedish national and health-registers and biobanks, and has specialized in contributing with this expertise in both national and international collaborations. A particular aim is to raise awareness of registers and biobanks as research resources by teaching commitments, and by coordinating SIMSAM, which is a part of a national effort aiming at better utilizing Swedish registers and health and social economics.
