Dr. Joshua Farr
Assistant Professor @Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN
Dr. Joshua Farr, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology and Kogod Center on Aging at Mayo Clinic. He received his Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of Arizona and completed his postdoctoral training in Endocrinology at Mayo Clinic. Dr. Farr’s work has been pivotal toward understanding the roles of cellular senescence in mediating bone loss in the contexts of aging and T2D. In recent years, Dr. Farr and colleagues have systematically identified senescent cells in the bone microenvironment of aged mice and humans as well as T2D mice and demonstrated a causal role for senescent cells in mediating age-related bone loss. Dr. Farr has served on the ASBMR’s Early Stage Investigator Subcommittee and Education Advisory Committee. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board for the Journal of Bone & Mineral Research and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
