Christine Stabell Benn is responsible for planning, executing and publishing epidemiological and immunological studies of health interventions in Guinea-Bissau and Denmark. She supervises a number of pre- and postgraduate/PhD students. Christine Stabell Benn has formulated the hypothesis that vitamin A supplementation and routine child vaccinations interact with consequences for mortality. Both types of interventions seem to have non-specific effects on the immune system, affecting its ability to handle infectious diseases. The effects are different in boys and girls.
