Molecular Targets and Therapeutics Center Metabolism and Cell Death

The Institute of Metabolism and Cell Death aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying life and death decisions in (patho-)physiological contexts. Understanding these mechanisms is central to both the identification of biomarkers and the development of new therapies to combat degenerative diseases and cancer.
