Healthy aging

Our extending lifespans, low physical activity and unhealthy diet make age-related diseases one of the today’s biggest health care challenges. We are developing solutions for healthy aging with research on metabolic diseases, mitochondria, regeneration and stem cells. Strengths include a unique homogeneous Finnish population, full coverage of health care records and registries that can be coupled to biobank data and to strong basic research.
