Research group is focusing on tobacco control law from perspective of seaside regions. Seaside regions have their specific issues in tobacco control. Mostly they are touristic regions with political and legal tendency to loosen tobacco control regulations and its enforcement which are seen as something what may discourage tourists. These regions have also bigger crossborder movement which is associated with smuggled tobacco supply. This causes greater public health threat with the need for more comprehensive legal approach.

A professional skipper is engaged in 16-20 weeks of uninterrupted work during the season, which requires exceptional psychological and physical effort, especially if we take into account the extremely demanding sleeping conditions in the absence of any life routine.
For the jobs of sailors in the Merchant Navy, there is also no research on physical demands, psychological stress, and the quality of sleep while performing jobs.
The scopes of research include spectrophotometric and spectrofluorimetric methods for the determination of antioxidative potential of different substrates including in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo samples like human blood (plasma, serum), tissues (animal, human) and different herbals. Recent research by this group has been focused on skin models of damages (mechanical, UV, chemical) and on various treatment potential of different substances for skin.
