AU and AUH strengthen research and treatment of pelvic cancer

Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital have appointed two new professors, both of whom are renowned experts in pelvic cancer. They will begin work on 1 April. The appointments are a marked bolstering of the area which will benefit patients.

The two new appointments are Professor Ole Mogensen from Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm and Professor Pernille Tine Jensen from Odense University Hospital. Both have their speciality area within gynaecological cancer, and they will be employed at Aarhus University’s Department of Clinical Medicine and the hospital's Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, which is responsible for the area together with the Department of Oncology. 

“With the appointment of Ole Mogensen and Pernille Tine Jensen, both of whom are very experienced and skilled medical doctors and qualified researchers, we strengthen and further develop the hospital’s highly-specialised pelvic cancer area. This underlines that our Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics demonstrates an area where we’re really well manned with both experienced medical doctors and researchers,” says Chief Medical Officer Jørgen Schøler Kristensen from Aarhus University Hospital. 

A boost for both the hospital and university 

Aarhus University Hospital is one of the country’s few, highly-specialised centres for patients with cancer of the cervix, uterus, ovaries and vulva, and the two professors have undergone special training and master the advanced surgical methods required in this area which will benefit the female patients.   

Both Ole Mogensen and Pernille Tine Jensen have already established significant research careers in this very field. To give the area of gynaecological cancer a further boost in Aarhus, funding for two PhD students to conduct research into pelvic cancer is already in place from the very first day of the two professors’ tenure.  

"With the appointment of the two professors in the field of pelvic cancer, we emphasise that we at the hospital have a very good partnership with Aarhus University regarding the appointment of professors that strengthens our patient-centred approach, research and the education of talented medical doctors,” says Chief Medical Officer Jørgen Schøler Kristensen.
