Wolfgang Wagner is Professor of Stem Cell Biology and Cellular Engineering at RWTH Aachen University Medical School (Germany). He studied Biology and Medicine in Bonn, Norwich and Biel. From 2002 to 2006 he worked as intern and research assistant at the Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology/Oncology, of the University of Heidelberg (chair: Prof. Dr. A. D. Ho) and worked as post-doctoral fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). In 2006 he started a research fellowship at the Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology, University of Heidelberg (chair: Prof. Dr. W. Kuschinsky) where he received his habilitation in Physiology. In 2009 he was appointed as University Professor supported by the Stem Cell Network NRW. His main research interests are molecular characterization of hematopoietic stem cells and their interaction with the niche; standardization and characterization of mesenchymal stem cells; and molecular and epigenetic effects of aging and replicative senescence.
