Research
















My
scientific interest due to my background of medical education is mainly based
on viral pathogenesis and clinical virology. My
special interest has been on Picornaviruses,
which are important human pathogens. Enteroviruses cause respiratory
infections, meningitis, encephalitis and myocarditis and rhinoviruses are the
most common cause of common cold. Viral
infections in wheezing children have been one major clinical project with international collaboration. On
this field we have published several important findings (e.g. efficacy of
prednisolon in early wheezing caused by rhinoviruses, the first wheezing episode with rhinovirus predict later ashtma development, hyperactive immune response in asthmatics to repeated rhinovirus infection). 



Teaching
















I
have been involved in teaching medical students since I started my carrier at the department of
Virology. During my carrier as a teacher, I have realized that  learning is a continuous lifetime process and I have tried to adopte more cognitive and constructive models of learning and teaching. 































I
have participated in development of PBL teaching in medical microbiology and
setting up a teacher tutor system in medical faculty. I have written a guide
for teachers about tutoring of students. I have published one pedagogic
peer-reviewed article in Finnish.
