Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
Annual Lecture:  Other
Title:  Stem Cell Aging
Description:  The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), cordially invites you to its fall seminar, featuring Dr. Sean Morrison. Dr. Morrison is the Director of the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern and is the Mary McDermott Cook Chair in Pediatric Genetics as well as an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The Morrison laboratory studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the function of stem cells and cancer cells in the nervous and hematopoietic systems. The laboratory is particularly interested in the mechanisms that regulate stem cell self-renewal and stem cell aging, as well as the role these mechanisms play in cancer. Dr. Morrison was a Searle Scholar (2000-2003), was named to Technology Review Magazine's list of 100 young innovators (2002), received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2003), the International Society for Hematology and Stem Cell's McCulloch and Till Award (2007) the American Association of Anatomists Harland Mossman Award (2008), and a MERIT Award from the National Institute on Aging. Dr. Morrison has also been active in public policy issues surrounding stem cells. He has twice testified before Congress and was a leader in the successful "Proposal 2" campaign to protect stem cell research in Michigan's state constitution.

We hope you’ll be able to join us in person to hear this engaging speaker and interesting story. Dr. Morrison will also be available before and after the seminar – anyone interested in meeting with him should contact me two weeks before the seminar at (subject line - Morrison GSIG Seminar).

The GSIG was created to discuss and explore the complex relationships between the biology of aging and the biology of diseases and conditions that are of interest to various institutes and centers across the NIH. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the GSIG web site (
