Much of our research draws on the unique clinical and population-based samples collected from the Finnish founder population and on the close partnerships we have with our clinical and industrial collaborators. Through our high-quality science, we are uncovering the underlying causes and drivers of disease and are translating medical molecular findings into public and individual health outcomes. The disease areas of interest cover, for example, cancer, cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes, immune disorders, neurological diseases, neuropsychiatric diseases, pre-eclampsia and addictions.
In addition to FIMM-EMBL Group Leaders and Research Directors, the institute houses many Academy of Finland Research Fellows and Visiting Professors, creating a diverse and cutting-edge research environment.
This page lists all our group leaders. Please visit our Grand Challenge pages for more information about the specific research areas.
