Research professors

THL has numerous research professors. Our versatile research demonstrates the breadth of our operations. The research professors are an integral part of THL’s research activities, even though they do not represent all of the research being carried out at the institute.

The professors’ areas of research cover biobanks, the genome of national diseases, infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, nutrition, mental health, sleep, intoxicants, social security, child welfare, development of social and health care services and environmental health. The common denominator in all of these is the health and social welfare of Finns, both as a whole and its different components.
