CV and experiences

I have worked with infertility and IVF treatment since 1991 when I was appointed research assistant at the Fertility Clinic at Herlev University Hospital. In 1995 I defended my PhD thesis on the uterine mucosa. From 1995-1998 i worked in basic science with human embryo implantation and uterine receptivity.

Subsequently, I was trained as a specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist at the National University Hospital (Rigshospitalet). I have worked as a staff specialist at the Fertility Clinics at Hvidovre and Holbæk Hospitals. Since 2006 I hold a permanent position at TFP Danfert Fertility in Copenhagen.

Concurrently with my clinical work, I have also been affiliated to the Institute of Medical Anatomy at the University of Copenhagen. I have continued my research into uterine receptivity and the possibilities of the egg attaching the uterine mucosa. I can offer supplementary examinations of the uterine mucosa through my close cooperation with leading research groups in Europe and the United States.

Besides this, the Danish Medicines Industry Association has certified me as monitor for clinical studies in accordance with GCP-regulations. We participate in development and testing of new medicinal products as well as other clinical studies with me as Principal Investigator.

I find it very important to keep my knowledge updated in the ever-growing field of assisted reproduction and therefore participate in 3-4 advanced courses and congresses each year, to offer you the most recent improvements. I also teach other doctors, nurses and embryologists within my own field of expertise.
