About the Danish Research Centre for Migration, Ethnicity and Health
The Danish Research Centre for Migration, Ethnicity and Health (MESU) was established on the 1st of January 2010 based on an appropriation from TrygFonden. MESU was established in close collaboration with Copenhagen School of Global Health, University of Copenhagen, the National Institute of Public Health, University of Southern Denmark and the Migrant Health Clinics at Odense University Hospital.
MESU initiates and conducts its own research and contributes to the development of others' research in the field through professional guidance and advice. In addition, the centre contributes to establishing professional networks for Danish and international researchers through regular research seminars and academic meetings, exchange of information on research initiatives and information about on-going activities in Denmark.
MESU is headed by Centre Director, Associate Professor Signe Smith Jervelund.
