and Harvard University assistant professor of stem cell and regenerative biology, who will study the mechanisms by which aging impairs blood cell function and develop strategies to prevent or reverse these age-acquired defects.

  • Jue D. Wang, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine assistant professor of molecular and human genetics, who will identify new ways that the cell controls how DNA is copied, which will give insights into many diseases.

  • Lei Wang, Ph.D., Salk Institute for Biological Studies assistant professor of chemical biology and proteomics, who will design and incorporate novel amino acids in roundworms to study how a class of proteins transmits signals regulating development and cancer.

  • Joseph C. Wu, M.D., Ph.D., Stanford University School of Medicine assistant professor of medicine and radiology, who will develop a microRNA-based approach for reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells.

  • Sean M. Wu, M.D., Ph.D., Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School assistant professor of medicine, who will employ mechanisms of embryonic development to engineer functional tissues for organ regeneration using pluripotent stem cells from different species.

  • Julia Zeitlinger, Ph.D., Stowers Institute for Medical Research assistant investigator, who will analyze the relationship between the DNA-packaging state of a cell and its developmental potential.
