The research in Center for Healthy Aging focuses on how more people can get a healthy life and a healthy aging.
The research is interdisciplinary and looks at aging and aging processes from cells to society. This knowledge will form the basis for new initiatives for both prevention and treatment.
The Center has been established through a generous donation from Nordea-fonden to the University of Copenhagen. Nordea-fonden donated 26 million USD in 2008, to meet the Center's running costs for five years and in 2013 Nordea-fonden decided to prolong the grant with an additional 26 million USD for a five-year extension from 2014-2018.
