Radiation and chemicals research group

Our research group is located at the Department of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Kuopio Campus. We use different approaches from exposure assessment and epidemiology to cellular and molecular biology to study the risks of radiation and chemicals to human and environment. Our research fields (non-ionizing radiation, ionizing radiation and chemicals) are connected with each other by common interest to genomic instability, joint effects of multiple environmental agents, and risk assessment. Due to multidisciplinary nature of our research, we co-operate with several domestic and foreign research groups. We are also a member of CORES (Finnish Consortium for Radiation Safety Research).
