Biography

Mikko Nikinmaa got his high school diploma (International Baccalaureate)
from the United World College of the Atlantic, Llantwit Major, U.K. His
university education including the Ph. D. degree he accomplished at
University of Helsinki, Finland. He did postdoctoral work in Odense
University, Denmark, and Stanford University, USA. Thereafter he worked
in the University of Helsinki with research visits to University of
British Columbia, Vancouver, and Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova
Scotia. In 1995 he was appointed Professor of Zoology in the University
of Turku. He was the President of Scandinavian Physiological Society in
1994-1996, and a member of National Research Council of Environment and
Natural Resources in 1995-1997. He served as a Dean of the Faculty of
Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 2000-2004, and was the director of
the Center of Excellence in Evolutionary Genetics and Physiology
(appointed by the Academy of Finland) in 2006-2011. He has been chief
editor of Aquatic Toxicology since 2004 and subject (respiratory and
comparative physiology) editor of Acta Physiologica since 1997.
Presently he is editorial board member in four journals. His more than 200 publications include the books "Vertebrate Red Blood
Cells" (1990, Springer) and "Introduction to Aquatic Toxicology" (2014, Elsevier), and a review on Membrane Transport and the
Control of Haemoglobin Oxygen Affinity in Physiological Reviews. He has
reviewed grant applications to agencies from more than ten different
countries, and served as an evaluator of academic positions in USA,
Canada, U.K., Sweden, South Africa and Finland. More than 30 journals
have used him as peer reviewer. His research interests lie in how
environmental changes, particularly temperature, oxygen and toxicants,
affect cellular functions especially in fish. An important aspect of
research is environmental regulation of gene expression, for example how
toxicants, oxygen and temperature changes affect transcription,
translation and protein stability.
