HST's founding mother Annelise Rosenfalck

In 1978, Annelise Rosenfalck received the first professorship of biomedical engineering at Aalborg University and was later in 1986 the founding mother for Department of Medical Informatics and Image Analysis (MIBA) – now developed into our Department of Health Science and Technology (HST) as we know it today.
