ERC-Sulfaging

The research group ERC-Sulfaging investigates the connection between ageing processes and so-called gasotransmitter signalling. The researchers focus on the signal transmission in cells via hydrogen sulfide.

In this young field of research, the researchers want to decode the exact mechanisms of hydrogen sulfide actions, for example with the help of worms. Their work on metabolic biochemistry provides important insights, for example for a better diagnosis and treatment of age-related diseases in the future. For this purpose, the European Research Council (ERC) has awarded Dr habil. Miloš Filipović the Consolidator Grant.

This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 864921).
