In its issue of March/ April 2014, the german magazine „Pro Alter“ reported about the work of the CECAD Cluster of Excellence and its model of interdisciplinary and translational aging research, where newly gained results are used quickly and efficiently to find new treatments for the patients.
Amongst other things, CECAD puts emphasis on the research on the mitochondrial function which is said to have a big influence on the process of aging, and the effectsof DNA damages on the organism.

The german magazine „NRW. A Spotlight on Biotechnology“ reported in its issue 2, November 2012 about the center of aging research in Cologne-Bonn, which is formed by the CECAd Cluster of Excellence, MPI for Biology of Aging (both in Cologne), caesar and DZNE (both in Bonn).
These research institutions put their emphasis on the relatively young discipline of aging research and try to find ways to maintain health in elderly people.
The institutions being close to each other favors the exchange and gain of new research results, as many oft he researchers are able to work in more than one institution.
