MERVI HYVöNEN

Senior Researcher

Ph.D., Adjunct Professor in Molecular Medicine


I work in arctic research strategic programme funded by the Academy of Finland, in the group led by Professor Jouko Vepsäläinen. We collaborate with Professor Alex R. Khomutov from the Moscow Engelhardt Institute. Our project "Biogenic amines in the health challenge caused by the changing arctic climate; ABIOHEALTH" belongs to theme "Changing arctic climate, changing diseases". We investigate the role and functions of polyamines in the biotic and abiotic stresses caused by the chaning arctic climate. We aim to develop novel polyamine-based drug candidates against pathogenic micro-organisms and diseases which are spreading to the arctic area due to theclimate change.
