Gert Martin Hald modtager fellowship fra Carlsberg Fonden


Lektor Gert Martin Hald, Institut for Folkesundhedsvidenskab ved Det Sundhedsvidenskabelige Fakultet modtog 10. januar 2017 Carlsberg Fondens 'Distinguished Associate Professor Fellowship' på 3 mio. kr. Med Carlsberg Fondens ord gives bevillingen 'to enable the most outstanding newly appointed associate professors with international experience to consolidate their independent research group or environment'.

Gert Martin Hald, der er cand.psych.aut., ph.d. og lektor i medicinsk psykologi, har siden marts 2015 været leder for Afdelingen for Miljø og Sundhed på Institut for Folkesundhedsvidenskab.

Med udgangspunkt i Gert Martin Halds forskningsgruppe 'SIR', som forsker i Seksualitet og Interpersonelle Relationer, skal midlerne anvendes som bidrag til gruppens nuværende 3 hovedforskningsspor:

  1. 'When Marriage Fails' - a longitudinal study combining questionnaire and Danish register research with the overall aim of investigating adverse psychological, physiological and economic effects of divorce among app. 2.500 newly divorced Danes.
  2. 'Healthy Sexual Aging' - a cross European study including Denmark, Norway, Croatia, England, Portugal and Belgium. The overall aims of the project are to a) investigate sexual well-being, sexual functioning, sexual health and body image among older age individuals and how these relate to healthy aging or illness prevention and recovery; b) investigate help seeking behaviours among older adults in relation to their sexual health and well-being.
  3. 'Sexuality and Relationships in the Danish Health Care System' is the first national project which systematically seeks to investigate sexual problems and the importance of interpersonal relationships in the Danish Health Care System and how it relates to sustaining health, illness treatment and recovery, and quality of life. So far two projects are planned a) Prostatic Cancer & Sexuality and b) Anxiety and Sexuality with more to be added within both the somatic and psychiatric parts of the Danish health care system.
