Stine Jacobsen

Professor

Stine Jacobsen moved from Jutland in the early 1990s to Copenhagen, where she studied at The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and obtained her degree in veterinary medicine in 1998. She defended her thesis The bovine acute phase response to endotoxin and Gram-negative bacteria from the same institution and obtained her PhD degree in 2003.

Her main research interests are bovine and equine inflammatory disease and acute phase proteins, the surgical stress response, joint disease and wound healing. The research is characterized by a ‘bench-to-box’ approach with much focus on understanding underlying pathophysiology in commonly occurring diseases in the large animal clinic, combining clinical and laboratory disciplines. Focus has been untoward responses to inflammation and trauma such as hyperresponsiveness during inflammation or aberrant wound healing. Her clinical interests lie broadly within equine and ruminant soft tissue and orthopaedic surgical diseases.

Stine divides her time between research, teaching of veterinary students and clinical work in the Large Animal Teaching Hospital, where she also participated in the surgical night duty.

Since 2009, Stine is a member of the Veterinary Study Board

Privately, she lives in Sengeløse, only few kilometers from The Large Animal Teaching Hospital, with her husband and two small boys.
