Jill Goldstein is a stem cell biologist dedicated to understanding how our bodily tissues maintain and repair themselves throughout adulthood. The goal of her research is to identify therapeutically relevant ways to restore healthy function to tissues in the contexts of aging and disease. Jill is currently an NIH/NIA postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Amy Wagers’ lab at the Harvard Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, where she has generated novel mouse models to interrogate how blood-borne molecules regulate stem cell function within the skeletal muscle and bone marrow. Prior to joining the Wagers lab, Jill completed her Ph.D. in Dr. Valerie Horsley’s lab at Yale University where she identified novel mechanisms that regulate hair follicle stem cell activity during pregnancy and cancer. Outside of the lab, Jill volunteers as a mentor for the Harvard Graduate Women in Science (HGWISE) mentoring program and trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
