Food environment and whole-diet in children - Studies on parental role modelling and food availability

Hanna Vepsäläinen

Since food behaviors are learned during childhood and may also track into adulthood, promoting healthy food habits among children and families is of special importance. Health promotion has traditionally been focused on individuals, but during the recent decades, the attention has shifted more and more towards environments. The food environment – a concept that encompasses physical, soci...

Design-Based Research: Educational Chemistry Card and Board Games

Maiju Tuomisto

The rationale for this thesis was grounded on the general importance of finding novel, research-based chemistry teaching approaches to engage students in learning, because lower secondary students are commonly not interested in chemistry and their attitudes toward this subject are often negative. Educational games have been noted to promote motivation, interest and enjoyment in learning,...

Genomic insights about the Lactobacillus genus

Ravi Kant

This thesis details an in silico exploration of the genetic potential of the Gram-positive genus Lactobacillus through the establishment and analysis of a pan-genome dataset. Lactobacilli are an intensively researched and studied group of bacteria, which is in part owed to their exploitation for various man-made food and industrial purposes and their advocated beneficial use as gut probi...

Occupational class differences in sickness absence – Changes over time and diagnostic causes

Johanna Pekkala

Sickness absence indicates ill-health among working populations and gives rise to notable costs due to lost working days. Employees in lower occupational classes have more sickness absence compared to those in higher classes. Extending working careers by reducing sickness absence has been a target at the national level in many Western countries due to ageing workforce and weakening econo...

Biomedical applications of nanofibrillar cellulose

Patrick Laurén

Hydrogels are emerging as an important source for current biomaterial design, as they often possess intrinsic physical and mechanical similarities with soft tissue, are non-toxic and biocompatible. However, many hydrogel-based biomimetic materials are either derived from limited sources, or require external activators to achieve functionality, such as chemical crosslinking or environment...

Aerobic oxidation of alcohols with homogeneous catalysts based on nitroxyl radicals

Kalle Lagerblom

The selective oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids is among the pivotal reactions in organic chemistry. Traditionally, the transformation is conducted using stoichiometric amounts of heavy metal oxidants, which are costly and their use produces large amounts of hazardous waste. In this respect, the development of catalytic methods, which use oxygen as the oxid...

Skeletal and extra-skeletal characteristics of WNT1 osteoporosis

Riikka Mäkitie

Genetic factors are of key importance in governing bone health and usually determine an individual’s skeletal characteristics in a complex and polygenic manner. Recent research has, however, identified several monogenic forms of bone diseases where the deleterious molecular changes in one gene overrule and lead to a distinct skeletal pathology. In 2013, our research group showed that a h...

Threat and protection - Boundary-making, categorization and identification in pandemic preparedness and response

Jose A. Cañada

In April 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared influenza A H1N1 a public-health emergency of international concern. This event was especially significant for marking the first pandemic outbreak to fall under 2005’s new International Health Regulations, an ambitious binding agreement to regulate international health. Since then, other communicable diseases have provoked simil...

The Patent Economics of Synthetic Biology

Bützow, Alexander / 27.04.2017

The Patent Economics of Synthetic Biology Bützow, Alexander Kyseinen työ tutkii uutta bioteknologian muotoa, synteettistä biologiaa, ja sen suhdetta eurooppalaiseen immateriaalioikeuteen, erityisesti patenttioikeuteen. Tutkielman keskeiset kysymykset koskevat sen selvittämisestä, onko 1) synteettisen biologian keksinnöt systeemisesti soveltumattomia nykyiseen patenttioikeuteen, ja 2...

Vastuun rajoittaminen asianajotoimeksiantosopimukseen perustuvan vastuunhallinnan keinona

Sotamaa, Rasmus / 27.04.2017

Vastuun rajoittaminen asianajotoimeksiantosopimukseen perustuvan vastuunhallinnan keinona Sotamaa, Rasmus Asianajajan mahdollisuuksiin rajata vastuutaan on perinteisesti suhtauduttu varovaisen torjuvasti niin Suomessa kuin muissakin Pohjoismaissa. Torjuvan suhtautumisen perusteet on usein liitetty asianajotoiminnan erityiseen luonteeseen. Vastuunrajoitukset on nähty erityisesti asianaja...
