Jamie was most recently with Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention where she served as co-director of the Biogerontology Lab and the Integrative Biology Core of WFUSM Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center. Jamie is a highly respected researcher and sought after speaker in human aging. She was the 2022 recipient of the American Federation of Aging Research (AFAR) Vincent Cristofalo Award, and NIH/NIA Nathan W. Shock Award, and the Jarrahi Fund in Geroscience Innovation. She is a leader in geroscience, which seeks to accelerate research into the basic mechanisms driving aging to improve clinical interventions on human health. This includes leading multidisciplinary teams to develop translational testing pipelines and clinical trials including metformin, senolytics, nutraceuticals, and lifestyle interventions in middle-aged and older adults. Jamie was also a leader of the NIH Geroscience Education and Training Network (GET Network), and committed to creating a diverse scientific community and workforce.
