On October 13, 2016, many of us who worked with the Swedish part of the ANGI study gathered to celebrate achieving our goal of collecting over 4000 blood samples in Sweden from people with anorexia nervosa.
On October 12, the television news-show Aktuellt showed an interview with professor Cynthia Bulik about the ANGI-project. Bulik, who is the leading researcher in eating disorders and director of the American ANGI, was interviewed at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.
The website for ANGI Sweden, ANGI.se, is now being launched. It will enable everyone to participate in the ANGI study. ANGI.se will provide information about the study and one will also be able to contribute with information by completing a web survey on the site.
A delegation from the University of North Carolina (UNC) in the US has visited Karolinska Institutet. Among other visits, they met with their Swedish colleagues in the ANGI project.
This August the ANGI project reached a milestone in its collection, when a total of 2 500 individuals had completed the study.
