The Grillari LABS - Research Focus


One of the major challenges that modern medicine and biology are facing today is the continuously increasing life expectance of the population and in consequence the increase in age-related pathologies. Since the changes in physiology and morphology of organisms, tissues, and cells during their life span are still poorly understood, it is of vital importance to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms of aging and aging associated pathologies in order to design strategies that allow for maximizing the human health span.

Therefore, our focus of research at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU-VIBT) is on understanding the cellular and molecular changes that occur during aging, how these changes affect tissue functionality and on where and how repair and regeneration needs to counteract these changes.
