The Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute e.V. (FLI) is a research institute, which has the objective of understanding the molecular mechanisms of aging. Thereby we would like to contribute to healthy aging in humans. Various animal models (e.g. mice and fish) help us to generate relevant knowledge on the causes and the mechanisms of age-associated diseases and to investigate new therapeutic approaches. Scientists from many different nations conduct research at FLI.
