We are a top-notch Finnish research consortium at Turku Positron Emission Tomography Centre, Åbo Akademi, and University of Eastern Finland. We use state-of-the art biomedical techniques, medical imaging, genetic analysis, and longitudinal medical records for investigating prevention, early detection and treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. We have recently started a new large-scale research project called LIFESTYLE where combine the aforementioned expertise and research techniques for
1) Revealing the risk factors for the common public health issues across our lifespan and understanding their disease mechanisms starting from cellular level all the way up to environmental factors
2) Developing novel biomedical and imaging-based screening techniques for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
3) Discovering novel pharmaceutical and other therapeutic approaches for these diseases.
Our project involves basic and applied medicine and related fields, and is done in close collaboration with pharmaceutical and biomedical companies as well as national health agencies. We would need graphic design for the project so that it can be used in our webpages, documents and when communicating about the project with hospitals and various governmental agencies.
The logo should somehow highlight human lifespan from birth to old age, or illustrate human development. Please avoid the stereotypical green - turquoise "medical looking" colour scheme. It is imperative that somehow incorporate a human and the developmental aspect into the design
