The primary goal of the Møllegaard group is to examine the effects of family environments and genetic predispositions in healthy aging. Our research combines insights from a number of scientific disciplines such as demography, sociology, public health, genetics, and statistics.

The goal of our research is to improve the scientific understanding of the relationship between social environments and genetic predispositions for health problems associated with, for example, smoking, alcohol, obesity, cognitive ability and mental wellbeing.

We have a particular focus on the family environment impacts health and a successful aging process.

“With our research we aim to improve our understanding of the socioeconomic differences in health and lifestyles by promoting an integrated perspective of social inequality and health science”, says Principal Investigator and Assistant Professor Stine Møllegaard.

Ideally, our findings will not only have scientific value, but also be used when developing strategies for supportive and preventive social and health policies.
