Keynote: Noise and vibration – underestimated risks for pregnant women?

Jenny Selander

Research group leader for EPIC- Exposure to physical and chemical factors and health

Jenny Selander, Ph.D, serves on the faculty of the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM), Karolinska Institutet (KI). She is a research group leader for EPIC- Exposure to physical and chemical factors and health, a team of two PhD-students, two post docs and one senior researcher. She is also deputy head of the unit of Occupational Medicine at IMM, KI and the program director for the Master program in Occupational Health (in Swedish), as well as course leader for Scientific Methods within the program.

Dr. Selander conducts research on physical and chemical exposures in occupational and residential settings in relation to health effects such as pregnancy related outcomes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Her focus is to study how exposures (Noise, vibration, air pollution, chemicals, heat, cold, physically strenuous work etc) separately and jointly affect health. Many exposures interact in the occupational and residential areas and joint exposure assessment is needed to evaluate the risks for the individual. Dr. Selander has been involved in noise research since the start of her PhD-studies and has pursued this in her further career. Dr Selander is currently involved in two EU-projects one focusing on environmental exposures and early life ( Equal Life, WP-leader, and partner leader for KI) and one on occupational exposures and health (EPHOR co-applicant), as well as a collaborative Nordic project (NORDSOUND, WP-lead) with an integrating approach to environmental and occupational noise. Further, she is PI/WP-lead for two national program grants and PI for several smaller national research projects.
