Research at the Institute of Environmental Medicine
Research at the Institute of Environmental Medicine is conducted in four major areas; epidemiology, toxicology, physiology and occupational and environmental medicine. The four areas then are divided into several units.
Importance of genetics, environment and diets for cancer, asthma/allergy, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
- Cardiovascular Epidemiology
- Environmental Epidemiology
- Nutritional Epidemiology
Occupational and Environmental Medicine
Chemical and physical health risks in occupational settings and environments. Evidence-based methods for health promotion in the workplace.
- Intervention and Implementation Research
- Occupational and Environmental Dermatology
- Occupational Medicine
Biomarkers and disease mechanisms for asthma, allergies and COPD. Effects of airborne exposures on the airways.
- Experimental Asthma and Allergy Research
- Immunology and Chronic Disease
- Lung and Airway Research
Identification and characterisation of molecular and biochemical processes of importance for toxic effects and disease. Toxicological risk assessment.
- Biochemical Toxicology
- Environmental Health Risk Assessment
- Metals & Health
- Molecular Toxicology
- Work Environment Toxicology
The international collaboration is a general feature of all the activities at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) - research as well as risk assessment and education. Scientists from the institute participates in a large number of expert groups and other scientific organs. Many of the research projects are carried out in collaboration with international partners.
