Morten Scheibye-Knudsen

Ageing Interventions

More: icmm.ku.dk

As a medical doctor, associate professor, and research group leader at the Center for Healthy Aging, University of Copenhagen, Morten’s work focuses on the very basic building blocks of life: our DNA. Particularly, he studies on how damages in our DNA may contribute to age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and cardiovascular diseases. He combines both computer modeling and laboratory experiments to better understand the ageing process. With this knowledge, he aims to modify the consequences of ageing by developing interventions that will allow everyone to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives.

Mette Nordahl Svendsen

Personalised Medicine

More: publichealth.ku.dk

As an anthropologist, Mette explores how human life is evolving in light of new advances in modern biomedicine. In her role as professor in the Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, she combines anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies to investigate how tailoring prevention and treatment to individuals shape the relationship between citizen and society and pose ethical challenges. Within the context of ageing, personalised medicine is increasingly gaining importance due to the stark differences in the needs and capabilities of one older person to another. Mette’s work will help facilitate a socially robust integration of personalised health care in the context of ageing populations. Considering that the CHALLENGE platform aims to contribute to personalized medicine, all ethical conducts are monitored by Mette’s project ”Personalized Medicine in the Danish Welfare State (MeInWe)”
