Old and Healthy: Researchers Find Novel Genes for Longevity in Mammals
04/10/2018 · FLI Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute
The genetic basis of lifespan determination is poorly understood. Most research has been done on short-lived animals, and it is unclear if these insights can be transferred to long-lived mammals like humans. By comparing genes of long- and short-lived rodents, researchers from Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) in Jena/Germany now identified in a collaborative project several novel genes possibly influencing longevity and healthy aging in mammals. The results have been published in journal PLoS Genetics.
Cognitive impairment in the elderly – What is the role of air pollution and lung function?
03/19/2018 · IUF Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine
A study from scientists at IUF – Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Düsseldorf, Germany, published in the European Respiratory Journal, indicates that poor lung function is not only a risk factor for cognitive impairment in elderly people but also partially mediates negative effects of air pollution on cognition.
Additional 5 Million Euro Funding for Aging Research in Jena, Germany
03/09/2018 · FLI Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute
The Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) in Jena, Germany, was approved 5 million EUR additional funding by the German Joint Science Conference (Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz, GWK), which thus implemented a proposal by the Senate of the German Leibniz Association. The funding is to be used to build up a new research focus on “Microbiome and Aging” at the Institute. In parallel, a recruitment effort to fill an associated tenured W3-professorship has already been initiated.
