We investigate frailty and how frailty interferes with diseases in old persons. Our main goal is to study and develop clinical, rehabilitation and organizational methods to limit the negative influence of diseases on the physical and cognitive function, quality of life and mortality.
The Bladder Cancer Research Team focuses on all aspects of bladder cancer from small non-invasive tumours to advanced bladder cancer with metastasis. From early detection through molecular medical methods to rehabilitation following major surgery.

Our main topic is colorectal cancer. We investigate anastomotic leak after rectal resection and how to lower the risk. Moreover, we evaluate efficacy, complications, late adverse effects, quality of life after surgery (HIPEC, pelvic exenteration) for peritoneal metastases and local advanced disease.
We investigate joint kinematics related to ligament instability and joint arthroplasty failure by use of dynamic radiosteremetry, 3D models of bones/implants, and deep learning. This leads to a new understanding of joint pathomechanics and quantification of surgical results with perspectives for improved treatment modalities.
The Aarhus Prostate Cancer-project is an important research resource. Promising new predictive and prognostic markers have been discovered - with the potential to make personalized medicine a reality. Medical trials, clinical epidemiology and the exiting new generation of imaging are all topics of ongoing research.
We conduct research within general thoracic surgery, thrombosis and haemostasis - especially intervention studies (e.g. randomized, controlled trials) and epidemiological studies, including minimal invasive surgery and cancer. We are involved in several national and international studies. Read more at www.ctvs.au.dk
Our research focuses on elucidating the aetiology and improving the management of urogenital congenital anomalies such as hypospadias, bladder exstrophy, posterior urethral valves and neurogenic bladder dysfunction. From the paediatric age group, through transition and into adulthood.
We eager to improve prevention and treatment of orthopaedic infections. We apply microdialysis for sampling of antibiotic concentrations, ischemic metabolites and inflammatory markers in bone tissue. This allows for an evaluation of the existing antibiotic treatment regimens and improves understanding the etiology of orthopaedic infections.
