Water Chemistry and Microbiology Research Group

The Water Chemistry and Microbiology Research Group at University of Eastern Finland (UEF) is a passionate bunch of individuals united by a common interest of solving the crucial water pollution challenges faced globally. Our experts specialize in water and wastewater treatment technologies and m...

Plant biology

The research group studies function of plants in response to environmental and climate change by using ecophysiologial, molecular biological methods and metabolomics, and utilizes novel spectral imaging techniques for biological research.

Quantitative cell biology

01.10.2020 -
In the Quantitative Cell Biology laboratory, we study the biology of cells through the prism of quantitative sciences. We use cutting edge quantitative bio-imaging tools to count biomolecules such as proteins or mRNAs, measure their interactions, clustering or quantify their motion in live cells ...

Mitochondrial biology

01.10.2012 -
Our group investigates the role of mitochondrial DNA maintenance as well as its role for the healthy function of cells and tissues, applying diverse methods in molecular biology and genomics.

Vascular Biology (Laakkonen)

'From basic science to translational impact.'
The goal of our junior research group is to improve therapeutics and diagnostics of cardiovascular diseases by understanding the biology behind the diseases. The main focus is in studying vascular anomalies and aortic aneurysms. Particularly ...

Neurobiology of disease

24.10.2017 -
The main goal of our research is to understand the mechanisms that lead to neurodegenerative diseases and to identify novel therapeutic approaches for them. We are interested in the effects of environmental factors (such as air pollution and viral infections) and lifestyle factors on brain healt...

Latonen Lab - Cancer stress biology

We study the molecular, cellular and tissue mechanisms that contribute to the increased ability of cancer cells to tolerate stress. We focus on the molecular mechanisms behind the different capacities of cancer and neuronal cells to deal with protein and RNA aggregates, and the ability of cancer ...

Neurobiology of Memory

Our research group investigates neurobiological mechanisms underlying memory impairment in Alzheimer’s disease and searches for new treatment options to halt the disease progression.
