The Institute

We are a dynamic, international and research intensive academic institution. Our faculty and staff includes about 100 professionals, including 15 professors.

Our unifying goal is health promotion. We think and study it on all levels from molecules to global issues. We annually publish about 200 peer reviewed international scientific articles, and a fair number of fresh PhD’s.

We beat the path together with students who represent various disciplines and programs, such as medicine, nutritional sciences, public health, ergonomics, food biotechnology, and so forth. Every year 20-30 new students from all over the world start in our international Master of Public Health program. Our institute is also a popular target for international exchange students.
