The mission of the European Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) is to better understand what causes ageing. Their studies are focused on the mechanisms that result in loss of cells with age and the decline in the function of old cells and tissues. ERIBA aims to develop novel strategies to prevent or combat age-related disease and to provide evidence-based recommendations for healthy ageing.
The approach is based on curiosity, communication and collaboration. Group leaders and their teams working with unique model systems and technology platforms meet regularly and share their knowledge and expertise to accelerate discoveries.
ERIBA is a research Institute which will focus on fundamental biological problems. It is likely that knowledge that is acquired through such a basic research agenda will repeatedly generate potentially commercially relevant intellectual property. The protection of such intellectual property is strongly encouraged and will be facilitated by a pro-active patent office. The nearby presence of the newly developed Healthy Ageing Campus will further enable future commercial activities.
