Ane Bærent Fisker from Bandim Health Project receives the 2018 Lundbeck Foundation Research Prize for Young Scientists

Senior researcher Ane Bærent Fisker receives on October 24, the 2018 Lundbeck Foundation Research Prize for Young Scientists for her research in health interventions in low-income countries.

Since 2004, Ane has researched non-specific effects of Vitamin A and vaccines at Bandim Health Project in Guinea-Bissau. Ane has a great interest in evaluating health interventions and how their implementation affect their impact. Her research has shown that there is sometimes a wide gap between assumed and measured effects. Ane has among other things show that the WHO recommendation to provide vitamin A with vaccines does not have the presumed beneficial effect on mortality, which has prompted discussion of whether the recommendation should be removed.


With the Lundbeck Foundation Research Prize for Young Scientists, Ane receives a well-deserved recognition of her efforts to optimise health interventions in low-income countries.
