Our Mission

Human ageing is a multifactorial process controlled by both environmental and genetic factors. Our mission is to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie the ageing process and that lead to age-related diseases. We hope that eventually this knowledge can contribute to a more healthy ageing of people. The central question we are aiming at answering is 

«What are the mechanisms that induce senescence or that cause the development of diseases related to age?». 

Our Approach

Our institute focusses on biological and biomedical research on molecular mechanisms of selected age-related diseases and of senescence. The scientific research groups at FLI cover a broad expertise in molecular and cellular biology, structural biology, bioinformatics, biophysics, biochemistry, genomics and animal research.

The combined scientific expertise of our groups, in cooperation with our academic and industry partners, allows to address the question of ageing and disease mechanisms on molecular, cellular and organismic levels. In addition to basic research, attention is also directed towards knowledge transfer to medical application, to prevention and therapy.
