RESEARCH AREAS
Research Area 1
August 27, 2013

(Coordinator: Prof. Tomasz Kostka).

Both nutritional status and muscular fitness are predictors of functional capacity in advanced age. Functional status, and, more particularly, capacity to perform basic and instrumental activities of daily living are the most important determinants of quality of life and well-being in the elderly.

Research Area 2
August 27, 2013

(Coordinator: ASSOC. PROF. Beata Sikorska)

Neurodegenerations are chronic, progressive, debilitating diseases that are increasing in prevalence in Europe. Their treatment is, at the very best, only symptomatic, since no specific curative therapies are available. As a result, they present an increasing burden of utmost social impact in aging European societies.

Research Area 3
August 27, 2013

(Coordinator: Assoc. Prof. Wojciech Piotrowski)

Chronic respiratory , kidney and cardiovascular disorders are among the most common comorbidities in the elderly. Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Dissease (COPD) are progressive inflammatory diseases of the airways, and their course may be complicated by various co-morbidities (i.e. ischaemic heart disease, heart insufficiency, diabetes, osteoporosis, lung cancer, depression and cognitive disorders).

Research Area 4
August 27, 2013

(Leader: Prof. Jolanta Niewiarowska, Prof. Czesław Cierniewski (†))

Several molecular mechanism are involved in cell senescence. This groups will focus on two selected issues:

  1. different aspects of molecular mechanisms regulating adhesion and migration of endothelial cells during angiogenesis induced by different agent and
  2. oxidativestress-induced DNA damage and dysfunctional telomeres in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
