The Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI), Jena (Germany), is a federal and state government-funded research institute and member of the Leibniz Association (Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e.V.). FLI’s internationally visible and highly competitive research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of aging and associated agerelated diseases. Scientists from over 40 countries are currently investigating the molecular mechanisms of aging and the occurrence of age-related diseases. Our aim is to create the basis for new approaches in medicine as a way to improve health in the elderly (www.leibniz-fli.de).
The Research Group “Aging of Protein Complexes” headed by Dr. Alessandro Ori invites applications for a
The Research Group is interested in studying how age and environmental factors affect our organs at the molecular level.
The group employs ultra-sensitive approaches allowing the quantification of thousands of proteins in tissues as well as in rare cell populations. The group’s goal is to identify, in an unbiased way, functionally relevant alterations of the proteome that will enable the researchers to understand the mechanisms of organ deterioration that impact on healthy lifespan.
This project (funded by the Else Kröner Fresenius Stiftung) will focus on intestinal stem cell aging, with a particular focus on the identification and functional characterization of cell intrinsic and extrinsic factors influencing epithelial regeneration during aging. The project will integrate omics approaches (proteomics, metabolomics), engineering of intestinal organoid cultures and in vivo models of regeneration.
