HALO Faculty

HALO Faculty represent a diverse group of accomplished scholars from the University of Washington, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and Seattle Children’s Research Institute.  HALO Faculty span at least 13 different UW Departments from the School of Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the College of Dentistry.  Many are recipients of prestigious awards, serve on editorial boards for top journals, and organize national or international conferences on topics fundamental to basic aging research.  Among current HALO faculty, four are Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, two are members of the National Academy of Sciences, and one is a recipient of the Lasker Award.

All HALO faculty have at least one major project in their lab focused on basic mechanisms of biological aging. As can be seen from the image at right, HALO faculty are high collaborative. Interactions are shown for faculty with shared publications, grants, current collaborations, or co-mentoring of trainees. 

A major factor in the selection of HALO Faculty is their dedication to training.  The majority of HALO Faculty are members of the Biological Mechanisms of Healthy Aging Training Program and are able to serve as mentors for BMHA Trainees.
