Lane Wins Nathan Shock Award

Dr. Mark Lane,, an investigator in the National Institute on Aging Gerontology Research Center, received the 1998 Nathan Shock New Investigator Award at the Gerontological Society of America's 51st annual scientific meeting. Lane's research focuses on intervention strategies using both primate and rodent model systems, and development and evaluation of biomarkers of aging. He is one of the coinvestigators of NIA's Nonhuman Primate Aging and Calorie Restriction Study, unique among gerontological studies using longer-lived species more closely related to humans. His special interests include metabolic mechanisms of calorie restriction and primate models of age-related bone loss and menopause. Lane has been an NIA senior staff fellow at the GRC since 1995.
