Biography

 

Kerstin Klipstein-Grobusch is Associate Professor of Global Health at the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands, and Visiting Professor of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.

She is an epidemiologist with broad experience and expertise in research capacity building and global health with a focus on cardio-metabolic disease in low-resource settings and vulnerable populations. Her research investigates the interface of communicable and non-communicable disease, specifically cardio-metabolic disease in HIV-infected populations; the influence of urbanization and migration on cardio-metabolic disease risk; and the short- and long-term consequences of non-communicable diseases during pregnancy on maternal and child health. As principal and co-investigator on internationally funded grants she successfully conducted several large-scale projects resulting in long-term sustainable and equitable partnerships. She undertakes etiologic, prognostic and intervention research, including the evaluation of mhealth interventions and implementation science research on scale-up of hypertension and diabetes care across several countries with diverse health systems.

She has extensive experience in research capacity building in epidemiology and public health in Sub-Saharan Africa as Academic Head of the Masters of Science in Epidemiology program at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa and as a principal and co-investigator in capacity building training programs and face-to-face and online learning courses in epidemiology, public and global health such as the Wits Non-Communicable Disease Research Leadership Program. She has supervised and mentored over 100 Master, PhD, and postdoctoral fellows and published over 200 papers. In her current position as Associate Professor and Academic Coordinator of Global Health her focus is on the development of global health (www.globalhealth.eu) at the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands.
