Sirtuin Research Group at School of Pharmacy develops novel modulators involved in histone acetylation. We have hundreds of in-house epigenetic regulators. We explore the regulation of sirtuins and BRD bromodomains in cancer.
This is a new research project, which will be performed in collaboration with other Finnish hospitals and currently we are negotiating of collaboration with The National cancer centre.

The group investigates the effects of non-ionizing radiation, ionizing radiation and chemicals from the point of view of both environmental health and ecological risks.
Our molecular modeling and computer-aided drug design (CADD) group at School of Pharmacy in Kuopio applies various computational chemistry methods to speed up identification of new drug candidates, and to improve their properties. Our group utilizes both structure-based and ligand-based methods.
