Research collaborations

GMT is participating in seven Eu-founded projects and is coordinating two of them. We are also hosting the Centre for Radiation Protection Research - CRPR.

CRPR

In November 2008 the Centre for Radiation Protection Research (CRPR) was inaugurated at Stockholm University. CRPR is an independent unit within the Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology and engages scientists working in the fields of radiation biology, radioecology and radiation dosimetry at Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet.

Funcfoood

Cancer, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the general population. Even a modest decrease in the prevalence of these afflictions translates into millions of lives saved. The aim of this project is to investigate agents with potential use as “functional food” constituents with respect to protection against these common afflictions.

Multibiodose

September 11th 2001 started a new era, where terrorism has to be considered as a realistic major threat for the economically developed countries. In addition to possible health effects, a terrorist attack based on the dispersal of radioactive material will cause panic among the public.
