Newsletter March

Dear EPINOR Friend, here comes the latest news from us. We start with the pictures from Bergen (above) and Oslo semester start meetings. Be inspired by the recent stories from our members who have attended courses or had a research stay abroad. Happy reading!

Registration for the EPINOR and CASE Summer School has deadline 15th March! Only a few spots left! Hurry if you want to join! EPINOR highly recommends, especially new PhD students, to join the summer school.


This year from 5th to 28th of January I had an opportunity to visit Australia and took part in collaborative research between Arctic University of Norway and Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute (Melbourne). EPINOR funded this relevant for me scientific activity. My Ph.D research focused on an understanding of the underlying aetiology of high cardiovascular mortality in Russia and its comparison with Norway. 

On January 15th – 17 th, 2018, I attended the Swiss Epidemiology Winter School in Wengen, Switzerland. I took the course ‘Statistical Analysis with Missing Data Using Multiple Imputation and Inverse Probability Weighting’ taught by professors from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University of Bern.

A week-long course titled Assessing risks and benefits of treatments: methodological issues is a collection of advanced master classes taught by international experts in pharmacoepidemiology and comparative effectiveness research. Who should participate? PhD students, postdocs, clinicians, and other professionals seeking to advance their skills and knowledge. Basic to intermediate knowledge of epidemiology and biostatistics is assumed.

Congratulations on defending your thesis

Kristine Vejrup: “Prenatal mercury exposure and associations with birth weight and neurodevelopment in children.
