AGING AND REGENERATION As we age, humans experience noticeable differences in our bodies—including some undesired effects on muscle, healing ability, and pain susceptibility. While aches and pains are a natural part of growing older, there is much to learn about the aging human body by studying other organisms and their path through life. Two preeminent biologists will present research on aging and regeneration, and how their work advances our understanding of muscle degeneration, cancer, and other phenomena that come with age. Featuring presentations by Dr. Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado: Investigator, Stowers Institute for Medical Research and Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Fellow, Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole; and Dr. Chen-Ming Fan: Staff Scientist, Department of Embryology, Carnegie Science. A panel discussion moderated by Dr. Marnie Halpern: Staff Scientist, Department of Embryology, Carnegie Science With an introduction by Dr. Yixian Zheng: Interim co-President for the Carnegie Institution for Science and Director, Department of Embryology, Carnegie Science.
