Cooperation and dissemination

In my international collaboration, I have contributed to the systematization of knowledge within penile cancer.

Most recently, I have collaborated with urologists from England and the USA to spread knowledge of guideline-driven work-up and treatment for penile cancer.

I am currently working with researchers in artificial intelligence, medical anthropology, and molecular biology to expand our understanding of options for men with penile disease.


My teaching philosophy is based on clear communication. Particular focus on urology and penile diseases. Teaches courses and individual lectures at Aarhus University and has also given guest lectures at universities in England, the Netherlands, and in Sweden. Mentors medical students, junior doctors, and Ph.D. students. More than 25 years of experience in teaching and popular communication from teaching medical students, teaching at evening school, and ongoing teaching of health professionals.
