About Irving Sherwood Wright, MD

Dr. Irving Sherwood Wright was a pioneer in aging research and at the age of 78, founded the American Federation for Aging Research. Dr. Wright earned both his B.A. and M.D. from Cornell University, and later served as attending physician at the New York Hospital and professor of clinical medicine at Cornell University Medical College, before becoming an emeritus professor in 1967. A renowned clinician, researcher, and educator, Dr. Wright's groundbreaking contributions extended beyond the field of geriatric medicine; he was also an international figure in cardiovascular disease. He pioneered the use of anticoagulants such as heparin and coumarin, which enable many modern cardiovascular therapies, including bypass surgery and angioplasty. The Center on Aging Research and Clinical Care is dedicated to continuing his remarkable and far-reaching work.
