The American Aging Association is pleased to announce that Nathalie Sumien, PhD, Associate Professor at the Center for Neuroscience Discovery, University of North Texas Health Science Center has been chosen as the 2018 Jim Joseph/Mark Smith Lecture Award winner. This distinction is awarded to researchers that have made substantial contributions to the field of aging.

The two researchers named in the award were Dr. James Joseph and Dr. Mark Smith.  Dr. Joseph was the Director of the Neuroscience Laboratory at the USDA-ARS Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tuft’s University. His research interests focused on nutrition, neuroscience and aging where he was internationally recognized for his work with fruits (blueberries), vegetables and nuts and their ability to slow or reverse age- related declines in motor and cognitive function. He was also an outstanding mentor, a Fellow of the American Aging Association, a Past-President and long-time board member of AGE. Dr. Mark Smith was a Professor at Case Western Reserve and a prolific scientist studying Alzheimer’s disease. Along with international recognition for his research, he also won multiple awards for teaching and mentoring, including the highest honors given by the University to a faculty member. Mark Smith was a Fellow of the American Aging Association and the Executive Director of AGE.

Congratulations Dr. Sumien, we look forward to learning more about your work at our annual meeting in Philadelphia in June!

AGE would like to thank Duncan Palmatier for helping obtain the trademark GeroScience.
