The DGfA was founded in February 1990. The association is committed to strengthen basic aging research in Germany. The DGfA also pursues to bring together basic scientists and clinicians working on aging research. An understanding of the biological causes of aging could ultimately help to develop new diagnostic tools and molecular therapies aiming to improve organismal fitness and to elongate the health span of aging humans.
