Molecular Mechanisms of Aging Regulation

Welcome to our lab's website !

Aging and age-related diseases are central to human health and longevity. We study the molecular mechanisms that regulate aging and hope to exploit them for therapeutic purposes. For more details on our research, please follow this link.

We are located at the new Integrated Cardio Metabolic Center (ICMC) at Karolinska Institute (KI) in Stockholm/Sweden. ICMC is a joint research center between KI and the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, aiming to develop innovative treatments for human diseases.
