Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Karl-Heinz Wagner


The research in my team focusses on oxidative stress and DNA stability as well as their modulation by lifestyle triggers such as the diet, single food compounds, phytochemicals, physical activity and physiologically active non- food compounds (e.g. bile pigments). We make use of human intervention, cross-sectional or case-control studies as well as mechanistic in vitro approaches. Another important pillar of our work aims to understand and boost active and healthy ageing.
