IDAC’s world renowned research facilities are spread across three buildings and divided into seven divisions. Within these division are a total of twenty-two laboratories collaborating with one another to achieve “smart-aging”. In addition, IDAC has three special facilities within the institute: the Cell Resource Center for Biomedical Research, the Smart Aging Research Center (S.A.R.C.) and the Pre-Clinical Research Center.

Center for Environmental Response Research

The Center for Environmental Response Research aims to clarify functional interactions between the aging process and stress response to environmental factors, such as environmental chemicals, pathogens and mechanical stimuli. The center’s ultimate goal is to delay the aging process and alleviate age-related diseases by regulating defense mechanisms and increasing cytoprotection capacities.
