My name is Janet Janbek. I am originally from Russia and Jordan and took my Pharmacy education at the University of Jordan- in Jordan. Since I moved here –around 3 years ago- I began on my master program in Public Health last year at Syddansk University in Esbjerg. I now got the opportunity to do a research year here at the Section of General Practice and the Research Unit for General Practice, Department of Public Health of University of Copenhagen together with the Research Unit for Dietary Studies at the Parker Institute, Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospitals.

Throughout these 12 months, I will be working on a project that looks into the nutritional biomarkers in pregnant women and their offspring health, and will be situated partly here, partly at Frederiksberg hospital. My work within this project will be to identify the pregnancies in the CopLab database by merging it with the Danish Medical Birth Registry as a starting point and, together with the available clinical tests, obtain a descriptive analysis of those pregnancies. Later, building on these results, it is possible to investigate the associations between various nutritional biomarkers found in the clinical tests and offspring outcomes such as cognitive development, asthma and obesity. This project will also form the basis of my master thesis- and hopefully also what comes after that.
