James White

Assistant Professor at Duke University School of Medicine

James White is Assistant Professor in Medicine, Division of Hematology and Senior Fellow in the Duke Center for Aging and Human Development. His laboratory studies mechanisms of age-related functional decline of stem cells within skeletal muscle, vasculature and the immune system. His research program employs a wide range of investigation including in vitro cellular assays, mouse models and human studies. The overarching goal of this work is to elucidate mechanisms of stem cell function in their respective tissues and rescue/prevent age-related dysfunction.

He earned a PhD in Exercise Science, specializing in skeletal muscle biology, at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in the lab of Bruce Spiegelman at Harvard Medical School.
