Cure Ageing! Reverse Ageing. A global movement.
A short brief: the logo should include a symbol indicating that ageing / ageing trajectories are unique.
The research group @Age conducts (worldwide) innovative, translational and multidisciplinary research in Gerontology, Geriatrics and Biogerontology (anti-ageing research). The group's mission is to prolong the healthy lifespan of an individual by prevention of age-related diseases. Ageing is the major risk factor for age-related diseases resulting in multiple diseases at higher ages. Understanding the biological basis of the human ageing process and its influence on age-related diseases is the starting point for establishing targeted interventions to prolong a healthy lifespan in humans. -> healthier for much longer.
Ageing starts in utero, functional and cognitive decline presents at the age of 25 years, diseases at the age of 50 years followed by further deterioration and death.
The website is for three groups:
1. general population interested in the ageing process (young to (healthy) old) - lifespan approach
2. researchers and policy makers in the field of ageing
3. patients interested in our trials
We are a very innovative, young (by heart), multicultural team of researchers and clinicians who want to make the real difference in preventing diseases by curing ageing.
Our work is NOT related to nursing homes, dementia, falls of incontinence.
The logo should stay away from the traditional images e.g. warm and tender care, wheelchairs and disability.
