Background:
Marte Wendel Gustavsen has a medical degree from the University of Oslo (2009).

PhD-project:
Title: "Clinical and molecular characterization of multiple sclerosis (MS)".
The focus of the project is to identify genetic and environmental factors contributing to susceptibility and clinical characteristics of MS.

Main supervisor: Hanne F. Harbo (MD, PhD)
Co-supervisors: Tone Berge (MSc, PhD) and Benedicte A. Lie (MSc, PhD, Professor at Department of Medical Genetics, Oslo University Hospital)

Research interests:
• Environmental risk factors in MS
• Genotype-phenotype analyses
• Clinical aspects of MS
• HLA
