LIFE is part of the University of Turku thematic research profile Health, Diagnostics and Drug Development, funded by the Academy of Finland. LIFE focuses on multigenerational health pathways for lifelong health. It has high scientific and public health importance and an innovative strategy to identify novel methods for early prediction, treatment and prevention of major non-communicable diseases that pose the highest public health burden globally.

Join us in January to meet the new tenure track professors and learn about the selected highlights of LIFE infrastructure!
