How is it possible to age healthily?

The Centre for Healthy Ageing (CHA) with the support of the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) Mainz commissioned the bestselling author Nina Ruge to speak with scientists about their latest findings on healthy ageing and longevity at the Aging Research and Drug Discovery Meeting (ARDD) in Copenhagen, Denmark (28 Aug - 1 Sept 2023). 

Protein clumps in the brain and the development of dementia

Spiegel-bestselling author Nina Ruge talks to Prof. Dorothee Dormann, a group leader at the CHA, about her research on the molecular basis of the neurodegenerative diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), as well as new starting points for therapies and the importance of her work for understanding Alzheimer's disease.

Balancing act at the chromosome - telomeres and healthy ageing

Spiegel-bestselling author Nina Ruge talks to Prof. Peter Baumann, a Scientific Director of the CHA, about his research on the regulation of the enzyme telomerase, the impact of stress on telomere integrity and how his work at the Centre for Healthy Ageing creates opportunities for novel therapies.
