HOH Group Leaders

Research in the Helsinki One Health network is lead by group leaders (principal investigators). The focus areas of Helsinki One Health, animal health and welfare, food safety and control, and translational medicine, brings together researchers from multidisciplinary areas, such as medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, biology, social sciences and environmental sciences. Some group leaders may be listed under more than one theme, as their research covers multiple topics. More information on the group leaders can be obtained by the links to their profiles within the University of Helsinki and the possible links to their group websites (below the PI information).
