Leibniz Research Alliance "Resilient Ageing"

The Leibniz Research Alliance “Resilient Ageing” combines the expertise of scientists from fourteen Leibniz Institutes and one associate Leibniz Institute to set up a highly interdisciplinary and coherent research agenda to study ageing from a comprehensive perspective. They will use their joined forces to take a look at the individual biological ageing process in connection with lifestyle, nutrition, education and other socioeconomic and sociopolitical factors. The aim of the research is to develop strategies at all levels so that more people can grow old in good health and society is not overwhelmed by rising healthcare costs.

The LRA 'Resilient Ageing' serves as major contact for politics and media concerning bio-medical and social-economic questions on aging. For detailed information see www.leibniz-gesundes-altern.de/en/.
