Open day 2016

October 29th, 2016, 10:00 - 15:00

Day of Ageing Research at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing and CECAD, the Excellence Cluster for Ageing Research

Why do organisms age? How can we influence our lifespan? What is happening in our cells when we age? What impacts have nutrition, genes and environment? Is it possible to stay healthy in old age? How exactly increases aging our risk of disease? Can we mitigate or even cure ageing-associated diseases such as Dementia, Parkinson's disease, Diabetes or cancer, when we intervene in the ageing process?

About 400 visitors used the opportunity to look behind the scenes. Here you can find some impressions from the day.
