Ida Løken Killie
I am a PhD student in the Systems Epidemiology research group (2020-2025). My main research focus is on associations between self-rated health and survival in the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) study. I am especially interested in how modifiable lifestyle factors and socioeconomic position affects these associations. My project is part of Work package 3 of the RCN-funded research project Healthy Choices and the Social Gradient.
By background I am a skilled molecular biologist/immunologist, and I have 10 years experience from the Immunology research group at the Department of Medical Biology before joining the Department of Community medicine. Here, I worked with human antigen-specific T cells in vitro and with developing a humanized mouse model expressing human HLA class II molecules for studying immune responses associatied with Fetal and Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) in vivo. I also had teaching duties in immunology and hematology for students in the medical, nursing, biomedicine, pharmacy and bioengineering programs.
I am a member of UiT's central election board and a former member of the faculty board at Faculty of Health Sciences (2021).
