Ellen Christine Leth Løkkegaard,
Professor, PhD, Consultant

Ellen Løkkegaard's long research carreer has been focused on the consequences of hormonal contraception, birth, surgical interventions, and treatment of menopausal symptoms. Her groundbreaking research has had world wide consequences, with recommendations regarding hormonal contraception being changed as to lower risk of thromboembolic events - presumably saving the lives of tens of thousands of young women. Currently she works at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Nordsjællands Hospital, Denmark, where she is involved in large clinical cohort studies of physical activity in pregnancy.

Jesper Friis Petersen,
PhD, MD

Before and after graduation as an MD from Copenhagen University, class of 2013, I've been devoted to OBGYN research. Pre-graduate, I focussed on retrospective approaches using the unique Danish registries to address matters of induction og labor and venous thromboembolism in pregnancy. Post-graduate, the center of attention has been early gestation, publishing papers of ovarian stimulation regimens, handling of the luteal phase and conducting a PhD focussed on first trimester complications, trying to optimize the prediction of location and viability of the fetus. 

Professionally, I’m currently working as a House Officer at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at North Zealand Hospital, Copenhagen, training to become a specialist.
