The central research mission of the IUF is the targeted and personalised prevention of environmentally induced ageing and associated diseases. To this end, the IUF is investigating the role of environmental factors in diseases, the underlying mechanisms, how they interact, who is particularly affected and how we can counteract the negative effects of environmental factors in detail. The work focuses on the effects of solar radiation, air pollution, selected chemicals and the interaction with climate factors - on the lung, the skin, the central nervous system and the immune system.
