ERIBA is a research institute where top scientists conduct fundamental research into the ageing process and associated diseases with their research groups.
In addition to laboratory and office functions, there are a large number of state-of-the-art research facilities in the ERIBA building. ERIBA researchers use techniques such as genome and toxicity studies, microscopy, bioinformatics and cell isolation.
Healthy Ageing-city Groningen
It is no coincidence that ERIBA is settled in Groningen. Both the UMCG and the RUG have Healthy Ageing, becoming healthy and active, as a focus for scientific research. Healthy ageing takes a lifetime and begins with the conception. Parents give their genes to their children and thus also a part of the chance of a healthy life course or possible risks of the onset of disease later in life. In addition to genes, lifestyle, nutritional patterns and environmental factors influence the development of health. But about the influence of these factors and how they relate to each other, new knowledge is needed.
