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.
