Research in this cluster focuses on:
- Metabolic stress
- DNA damage and repair
- Biomarkers and biosensors for aging
- Cancer and other diseases
Reactive oxygen species play a pivotal role in oxidative stress generated by environmental factors, drug therapy and metabolic disorders, with consequences to neural functions, cell viability and genomic stability.
Biomarkers and biosensors for exposure and response to the various stress and environmental factors are highly relevant for identifying and utilizing predictive biomarkers for human well-being and aging as well as for improving the treatment of cancer, neurological disorders, and other diseases.
