We are thrilled to announce our new Arts and Science series “AGE ART” here at our institute.  AGE ART is a unique collaboration featuring innovative artists and scientists in one setting comprising of musical performances, art exhibitions, theater and films in combination with scientific talks.

For the first event, we will feature a scientific lecture by Maria Leptin, professor at the University of Cologne Institute of Genetics and director at the European Molecular Biology Organization in Heidelberg. She will introduce the visitors to the basics of ageing research.
