Type of institution

Research centre



The new Max Planck Institute in Cologne carries out research on the aging process using model organisms. Professors Nils-Göran Larsson, Linda Partridge and Adam Antebi, who are the first directors of the new Max Planck Institute, are three leading international scientists who have produced important findings on the biology of the aging process through their research with mice, flies and worms.


The research studies the function of mitochondria.

Main research areas

The focus is on regulation of the transcription and translation of mitochondrial DNA, how these processes work, and what happens when these are disrupted. We are also working on developing better drugs that do not adversely affect mitochondria.
