Research Summary

Dr. Rogne's research prior to starting his tenure-track at Yale can be divided in two: His PhD was in traditional perinatal epidemiology, while genetic epidemiology of infectious diseases was the focus during his postdoctoral fellowship. As Assistant Professor of Perinatal Epidemiology Dr. Rogne will combine these experiences to study genetic epidemiology in the perinatal setting. This will include to study the maternal and offspring genetic effect of birth outcomes, and also implementing genetic variants in an instrumental variable analysis framework (often referred to as Mendelian randomization) as a technique to come closer to the causal effect of an exposure on an outcome. The nationwide Nordic registries and the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort Study are currently his primary sources of data, but he aims to include data from the U.S. in the future.
