A leader in the field of stem cell biology, Dr. Wagers has done groundbreaking research to uncover new migratory pathways and signaling networks that regulate the functioning of hematopoietic stem cells. Understanding how these cells function could lead to better treatments for a range of diseases including cancer, anemia, and diabetes. For her lecture, Dr. Wagers will discuss the fundamental principles that govern tissue aging and determine stem cell function in organ regeneration and degenerative disease.
The annual Florence S. Mahoney Lecture on Aging is named in honor of Florence Stephenson Mahoney (1899–2002). She devoted the last half of her life to successfully advocating for the creation of the National Institute on Aging and increased support for the NIH.
