Congratulations to Margie E. Lachman, Ph.D.

Lachman, MargieThe Division of Social Sciences is proud to congratulate Dr. Margie Lachman on receiving the Gerontological Society of America’s 2015 Behavioral and Social Sciences Distinguished Career Contribution to Gerontology.

Dr.┬áLachman’s research is in the area of lifespan development with a focus on midlife and later life. Her current work is aimed at identifying psychosocial (e.g., sense of control, social support) and behavioral (e.g., physical exercise) factors that can protect against, minimize, or compensate for declines in cognition (e.g., memory) and health. She is conducting studies to examine long-term predictors of psychological and physical health, laboratory-based experiments to identify psychological and physiological processes involved in aging-related changes, and intervention studies to enhance performance and promote adaptive functioning.

Thank you Dr. Lachman for your contributions to your Brandeis colleagues, students and the world.
