    • Factors associated with maternal serum levels of perfluoroalkyl substances and organochlorines: A descriptive study of parous women in Norway and Sweden 

      Lauritzen, Hilde Brun; Larose, Tricia L; Øien, Torbjørn; Odland, Jon Øyvind; van de Bor, Margot; Jacobsen, Geir Wenberg; Sandanger, Torkjel M (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-08)
      <b>Introduction</b><br> Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and organochlorines (OCs) are ubiquitous and persistent in the environment and proposed endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). They can be transferred across the placenta during pregnancy, and studies suggest that the prenatal period may be particularly sensitive for influences on fetal growth and development. Several studies have ...
    • In utero exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals, micro-RNA profiles, and fetal growth: a pilot study protocol 

      Larose, Tricia L; Sætrom, Pål; Martinussen, Marit; Skogseth, Haakon; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Scélo, Ghislaine; McHale, Cliona M; Jacobsen, Geir Wenberg; Smith, Martyn T (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-05)
      <i>Background</i>: The developing fetus is particularly vulnerable to the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Molecular fingerprints of EDCs can be identified via microRNA (miRNA) expression profiles and may be etiologically implicated in the developmental origin of disease (DOHaD).<p> <p><i>Methods/design</i>: This pilot study includes pregnant women at high risk (smoking at ...
    • Maternal serum levels of perfluoroalkyl substances and organochlorines and indices of fetal growth: a Scandinavian case-cohort study 

      Lauritzen, Hilde Brun; Larose, Tricia L; Øien, Torbjørn; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Odland, Jon Øyvind; van de Bor, Margot; Jacobsen, Geir Wenberg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-26)
      <b>Background:</b> The associations between prenatal exposure to endocrine disruptive chemicals (EDCs) and fetal growth are inconsistent, and few studies have considered small-for-gestational-age (SGA) birth as an outcome. Our current study of Scandinavian parous women aimed to address these inconsistencies and gaps in the literature.<br> <b>Methods:</b> This case–cohort study included 424 ...
    • Springboard to an academic career—A national medical student research program 

      Jacobsen, Geir Wenberg; Ræder, Helge; Stien, Marianne Heldal; Munthe, Ludvig Andre; Skogen, Vegard (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-30)
      Over the last decades there has been a decline in the recruitment of medical students into academia in all medical fields. Concurrently, medical research has increasingly included other disciplines in multidisciplinary convergence, introducing an unmet recruitment gap and requirement for medical researchers. To counteract the trend and recruit students to academic medicine, a national intercalated ...
