The European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) of the University of Groningen and the UMCG will be offering a free online course on the biology of ageing beginning on 1 June. The six-week, English-taught course will address such questions as: Why do we age? Can we increase our lifespan? Is there a limit to the age people can reach?
