Dr Sobko, Tanja
Dr Sobko has previously held a permanent research post at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, where she conducted research in both pre-clinical and clinical settings involving infants and adults as well as animal experiments and in-vitro studies. She began her research career in nutrition and dietetics, completed her PhD studies in Pharmacology (2006, Karolinska Institutet), followed by a 2-year postdoc at Kyorin University, Japan, where she studied the health effects of the traditional Japanese diet. Recently she also contributed early-nutrition work for WHO, Programme for Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity.
She is currently focusing on early prevention of childhood obesity, which involves life style modifications for the entire family in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, sleep and parenting. Dr Sobko has been collaborating with the Bureau of Health of the Macau Government, leading the “Targeting Early Obesity” (TEO Macau) project, involving families with newborn children. The aim of this research is to understand key health determinants responsible for building healthy environments within the family early in life. Her collaborative network reflects her broader research interests and she has been fortunate to include some outstanding scientists from Karolinska Institutet, University of Copenhagen, WHO, MRC Cambridge, and the Macau Government, among others.
She has been actively practicing Aikido for the past 17 years, having earned her black belt since 2006.
