PI: Corina Madreiter-Sokolowski
Focus: The junior group of Corina Madreiter-Sokolowski investigates in cooperation with the research team of Wolfgang Graier age-associated alterations using various in vitro aging models and Caenorhabditis elegans. The research focuses on the alteration of mitochondrial calcium homeostasis during aging and its impact on cellular metabolism, ROS homeostasis, and intracellular signaling. Thereby, the group aims to identify novel targets and suitable compounds to counteract the development and progression of age-related diseases.
Network: We cooperate internationally with Jesse Hay (University of Montana, USA), Pidder Jansen-Dürr (University Innsbruck, Austria), Michael Ristow (ETH Zurich), Markus Schosserer (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria). Internally at the university, we work with Wolfgang Graier, Dagmar Kratky, Tobias Madl and Roland Malli (all Gottfried Schatz Research Center).
