Aging Associated Diseases

Dementia, diabetes, chronic inflammation, cancer, infection, chronic kidney disease, arteriosclerosis … all medical conditions that become more common with age. 

In a world in which more and more people are living longer and longer, aging research is particularly relevant to society. Only by identifying the molecular processes that trigger the pathogenesis of a disease can we find research approaches to give us a new understanding of age-associated disorders. With the slogan “From bench to bedside and back”, translational research at CECAD effectively transfers research findings into clinical practice. Given the new global challenges in infectious diseases, the fight against common diseases and age-related disorders, the increase in neurodegenerative disorders and new types of cancer, a greater understanding of the body’s metabolic processes and the development of new medical strategies are extremely important for every member of society.
