ERIBA's success

05 December 2012

Groningen is home to a world-famous institute: ERIBA, the European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing, in which the University of Groningen and UMCG collaborate closely. Scientists are conducting fundamental research into ageing processes and the related diseases. Researchers from across the world are eager to work at ERIBA. 2012 was a memorable year for ERIBA. It not only received funding for a number of special projects, but its researchers also moved into a wonderful new building.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
