Nature-Based Solutions Research Group concentrates to solve globally significant environmental problems. Research objects range from micro-organisms to ecosystems and to people prone to manmade environmental changes. The outburst of immune-mediated diseases, biodiversity loss, urban pollution and plant invasiveness are interrelated, and our group is working in multidisciplinary research initiatives to minimize the consequences. The largest research project of the group is the strategic research opening ADELE – Autoimmune defense and living environment funded by TEKES (The Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation). The main objective of ADELE is to study the effects of our everyday living environment on health.
