    Future of Biobanking

    04/12/2019 Duração: 27min

    In this year’s last episode we take a look in the mirror. Having so far focused on the great work of our collaborators, we now turn the attention on biobanking itself. Inspired by our recent co-hosted PhD course and symposium: “The Future of Biobanking”, and with the help of biobanking expert Eva Ortega-Paino, we explore the past, present and future of biobanking. The Danish National Biobank is a treasury of science for international health research. It contains 10 million biosamples across an array of diagnostic categories, as well as the Danish Biobank Register that links over 25 million biosamples in Danish biobanks to vast amounts of register information. This podcast will give an insight into some of the amazing research done through the Danish National Biobank, and hopefully inspire researchers to utilize this potential in the future.

  • Roots of Infertility

    Roots of Infertility

    04/11/2019 Duração: 22min

    This time we go searching for some of the root causes of male infertility with the world’s largest male offspring cohort, as we visit Bispebjerg Hospital, Copenhagen and the FEPOS-project. Though we are far from dystopian scenarios where humanity’s actual existence is threatened by infertility, it is one of the most common among major health issues facing young people. Infertility can be devastating, and half the time a couple faces infertility, semen quality is part of the problem. We sat down for a talk with Sandra Søgaard Tøttenborg, a reproductive and environmental epidemiologist, and Principal Investigator on the FEPOS-project. FEPOS investigates the possible causes of male infertility in what is passed on to the next generation at the fetal stage.  The Danish National Biobank is a treasury of science for international health research. It contains 10 million biosamples across an array of diagnostic categories, as well as the Danish Biobank Register that links over 25 million biosamples in Danish biobanks

  • Word Along the Wire

    Word Along the Wire

    02/09/2019 Duração: 24min

    New research by genetic epidemiologist, Bjarke Feenstra of Statens Serum Institute, will help solve the puzzle of birth. In this episode Bjarke tells us about the new piece of the puzzle that he and his team have discovered. As a world first, they’ve been able to pinpoint a certain location in the genome of the unborn child that affects when the child is born. Here cytokine proteins seem to work as a sort of telegraph sending word along the wire, from child to mother. Signaling that the child is ready to come into the world.
