Occupational and environmental medicine

Our research in occupational and environmental medicine is about the importance of various environmental factors for health and covers all age groups. We run projects on work environment, indoor environment or outdoor environment, and the exposures can be physical, chemical, biological, psychosocial as well as organizational.

In our research, we use both quantitative and qualitative methods and do both epidemiological studies, experimental studies and intervention studies. We are also developing new measurement methods.

Professor Magnus Svartengren is the research group leader, but many research projects are conducted within the group and these are led by different project leaders.
