Cristina Aguayo-Mazzucato

Cristina Aguayo-Mazzucato (MD, PhD) is an Assistant Investigator at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston and Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. She received her MD and PhD degrees from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and joined Joslin in 2007 as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Susan Bonner-Weir. During that period, she worked on beta-cell development and derived effective in vitro strategies to enhance their functional maturation for beta-cell replacement therapies.

She became an independent investigator in 2019 and her laboratory at Joslin Diabetes Center focuses on understanding the role of beta cell aging, senescence in particular, in the development of diabetes. The long term aim of the Beta Cell Aging Lab is to identify effective strategies that can prevent, delay or reverse the onset of the disease.
