Immunology and Ageing

Over the recent years it became clear that ageing of the immune system influences organismal ageing. Researchers from the participating Leibniz institutes teamed up with external partners to delineate molecular mechanisms, genetic factors, and cellular interactions that lead to functional impairments of the immune system in the context of ageing as well as its consequences for organismal ageing. We want to answer if ageing-associated impairments in immune function aggravate damage accumulation and biological ageing.
