Summary of key aims

The German National Genome Research Network NGFN aims at understanding the structure and function of the human genome and its contribution towards the development of diseases with the goal of utilising this knowledge for the improvement of diagnosis and treatment as well as for the development of industrial productions and services. Nine interdisciplinary "disease-orientated genome networks" focus on disease areas of major health policy importance: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the nervous system, infection/inflammation, and diseases due to environmental factors. These interdisciplinary networks closely interact with twelve "systematic-methodological platforms", in which high-throughput methods are developed and applied towards the systematic analysis of the structure and function of the genome of man and of important model organisms.

As part of the over 320 sub projects of the NGFN, sub projects of relevance for AGEING are being funded.
