Jena Aging Meeting 2020

Welcome to the Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI)


Minimal operation mode at FLI - Phase C

The Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) has been in minimal operation mode since March 23, 2020. The aim of this measure was to limit the spread of the corona virus and protect our staff from possible infections by this virus.

From April 20, 2020, FLI will begin to gradual resume normal operation. In compliance with all regulations and legal obligations, some amount of experimental scientific research will be possible again at FLI. Our first priority remains the health of our employees, to ensure the wellbeing of our laboratory animals and to prevent further spread of the corona virus as far as possible.



The Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) is the first national research institute in Germany focusing on biomedical research on human aging, a multifactorial process controlled by environmental and genetic factors.

This website will provide you with an insight into our institute, the research we do and the faces behind FLI's science activities. We wish you an exciting and entertaining voyage of discovery into the world of aging research at FLI.
