The European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) is a nonprofit research facility based in Groningen, Netherlands, concerned with cross-disciplinary research on ageing.[1] The institute is part of the University Medical Center Groningen and is funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation, the province of Groningen, Collaboration of the Northern Netherlands (SNN), the European Union, the Noaber Foundation and the Pediatric Oncology Foundation Groningen. The total sum granted was € 3.95M in 2011 and € 7.4M in 2012. The main building was designed by Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau.[2]

Research groups in ERIBA study ageing biology and stem cells, cellular biochemistry, gene regulation in ageing and age-related diseases, genetic instability, genome structure ageing, genomic instability in development and disease, molecular mechanisms in lifespan regulation, molecular neurobiology of ageing, quantitative epigenetics, stem cell regulation and telomeres and genome integrity.
