GERO | Geroscience Center for Brain Health and Metabolism

We are a FONDAP Centrer for the Study of Aging and its

relationship with brain deseases.

We seek to improve the quality of life of people

increasing the period of healthy life of each individual..

AGING

The world is aging and Chile is no exception.

The increase in life expectancy

and a decrease in the birth rate,

 make our population ages rapidly.

The increase in life expectancy is the first risk factor for the development of neurodegenerative diseases. These diseases, which currently have no cure, represent a scientific, economic, social and public health challenge.

We need to understand the aging of our population from a holistic approach that integrates basic science, clinical, psychology and sociology.

The studies developed in our center are aimed at understanding the aging of our population and the generation of interventions that increase the period of healthy liftoff the  chileans.

TEAM

We are scientists in fundamental research and clinical fields of neuroscience, molecular biology and genetics.

We seek to design interventions that slow aging and counteract age-related diseases.

    RESEARCH

    Our research is divided into 3 essential pillars:

    1. To study the factors associated with aging in a cohort of Chilean patients affected with cognitive and motor disorders diseases.

    2. To investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms associated with aging that influence the development of neurodegenerative conditions in pre-clinical models.

    3. To develop intervention strategies to increase the useful life and health in preclinical models of neurodegenerative major diseases and translate this knowledge into the clinic.

    STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

    Our Center has established an alliance with the Buck Institute for Research on Aging (California, USA), a center of world class in research on Aging, to promote frontier and multidisciplinary research on Aging.
