The research of the Institute is mainly focused on biological indicators on long-term strain, for example the balance between mobilization of energy and anabolism and so called disturbances of regulations. We find such disturbances in bodily systems, such as brain activity – which, with use of EEG, can be measured even during normal activity in ordinary days – the immune system, the coagulation system, blood pressure and heart activity. The long-term objective of our research is to contribute to improved public health.

Our research is broadly organised into three major categories:
