The Center for Clinical Research and Prevention (CCRP) at Copenhagen University Hospital-Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg is a globally recognized research center operating under the administrative system of the Capital Region (Region Hovedstaden) in Denmark.

Our focus areas include population-based epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, health promotion and prevention research, health services research, and biostatistical expertise. The CCRP is dedicated to enhancing and advocating for health across mental, physical, and social dimensions.

In epidemiology, we leverage unique population-based cohorts collected over many decades, supplemented by continuous data generation. Coupled with extensive national health and socioeconomic registers, these resources enable us to conduct a wide array of studies on health and disease consequences, etiology, and trends.

Lise G

Senior Researcher
Lise G. Bjerregaard is a Senior Researcher at the Center for Clinical Research and Prevention, located at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital. She earned her BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees in Public Health Sciences from the University of Copenhagen.

Her research primarily revolves around life course studies of body weight, utilizing population-based data to investigate the causes and consequences of childhood obesity. Her scientific focus areas include exploring the developmental origins of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and age-related diseases.

To conduct her research, Lise utilizes various data resources such as the Copenhagen Infant Health Visitor Records, the Copenhagen Perinatal Cohort, and the Copenhagen School Health Records Register, in addition to national registers and databases.

Head of Life Course Epidemiologist

Dr. Jennifer L. Baker serves as the Head of Research in lifecourse epidemiology at the Center for Clinical Research and Prevention, Copenhagen University Hospital-Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg, located in Denmark. Her research program delves into understanding how body size and growth during childhood, along with other lifecourse exposures, contribute to disease development.

With a particular emphasis on childhood obesity, Dr. Baker and her team investigate the causes and consequences of this condition. They utilize large population-based cohorts combined with nationwide health and socioeconomic registers to conduct their studies.

Additionally, Dr. Baker holds the position of co-chair for the European Association for the Study of Obesity Childhood Obesity Working Group.
