Unit of Placenta and Particles (POP)

The research group is headed by professor, Ph.D., DMSc Peter Møller.

Focus areas include adverse health effects of particles from air pollution both outdoors and indoors and engineered nanoparticles and nanomedicine, as well as the involved mechanisms of action in particular related to oxidative stress and vascular functions.

The work spans the entire hierarchy of methods from experimental models such as synthetic membranes, organotypical cell co-cultures with advanced optical instruments and transgenic animals, through the use of biomarkers and functional goals in populations with controlled exposure and interventions in particularly sensitive groups, to register-based epidemiology at the aggregate level.
