DNBC Symposium and 20th Anniversary

In May 2019 half of the young participants in the DNBC had turned 20 years old. To mark this event, a scientific symposium was held on May 29th 2019 in Copenhagen. The day was a great success - the auditorium was filled up, the lectures were interesting, and the atmosphere was cheerful.

DeltagerPI Anne-Marie Nybo Andersen and a fully booked auditorium.

May 29th, 2019 was a day of highlight presentations from cohort research in Europe and from the DNBC in particular, as the DNBC management in collaboration with the LifeCycle Project presented the below programme.
