The American Aging Association honors Huber R. Warner, PhD., Retiring Associate Director, National Institute on Aging


On behalf of American Aging Association and his many biogerontological colleagues, the author thanks Huber R. Warner for his 21 years of exemplary service at the National Institute on Aging (NIA). In so honoring Dr. Warner, we also honor his many associates at that “user friendly” branch of the National Institutes of Health. Some highlights of Dr. Warner's scientific training, academic career and special contributions while serving in a leadership position at the NIA are reviewed. We wish him well as he returns to the University of Minnesota, this time as Associate Dean of Research in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Key words: aging, antioxidant, apoptosis, NIA, Hutchinson–Gilford syndrome, mitochondrial dysfunction, phospholipids, replicative senescence
