Organisation profile:

Our division focuses on gerontological and geriatric research and includes basic through clinical studies, with special expertise in clinical trial design in old age. Over the past years, three main research lines have been established: ‘musculoskeletal frailty in the elderly’, ‘cognitive disorders and dementia in the elderly’, and ‘models and quality of healthcare for the elderly’. Here, we focus on research on osteoporosis, sarcopenia and frailty in old age, drug therapy and cognition in old age and the development of innovative care models for this age group.
