About Cecilia Bergh

Cecilia Bergh PT, PhD, is a senior lecturer at the School of Health Sciences. Her doctoral thesis from 2017 focused on characteristics in adolescence and adulthood linked with subsequent cardiovascular risk. Current research interests, as a member of the Clinical Epidemiology group, include the study of life-course exposures relevant to later health and cardiovascular disease. One area is concerned with identifying causes of low stress resilience. Current epidemiological projects investigate how the stress response, and other characteristics in adolescence, may be influenced by perinatal and early life stress. This could be of importance in order to establish the extent to which exposures in infancy are responsible for setting stress resilience in the general population.                                                                 

Another area of research is linked to the Department of Cardiology, Örebro University Hospital. Cecilia is principal investigator of a clinical project with the aim to study effects of freeze-dried bilberry intake on cardiovascular risk factors after myocardial infarction. This is a multicenter, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial with 900 patients.
