The Providence Area Aging Research Forum (PAARF)
PAARF has a new permanent location!!! Both the food and talks will be held at the Laboratories for Molecular Medicine at 70 Ship St, room 107. Food is served at 5:30 pm, talks begin at 6 pm.
PAARF is a forum allowing students, postdocs, and junior faculty to present data in a friendly atmosphere with a focus on discussing unpublished research in progress. The objective is to stimulate a grass-roots dialogue not only to troubleshoot data from a variety of perspectives, but also to stimulate collaborations. This venue is enthusiastically embraced by members of the Brown Biology of Aging Initiative and frequently attracts participants from the surrounding community, such as Rhode Island Hospital, Providence College and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. PAARF is usually held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Laboratories for Molecular Medicine at 70 Ship Street in room 107. Refreshments are served at 5:30 and the presentations begin at 6:00 PM.

Brown University Colloquium on the Biology of Human Aging
The 2018 Biology of Human Aging Colluquium will be held on Monday, May 21, 2018. All of the talks will be held in room 220 in Sidney Frank Hall.
The Biology of Human Aging Colloquium was founded in 1998 by Drs. Sedivy and Tatar, and is currently under the leadership of Dr. Helfand. The colloquium is a full-day event, with lectures delivered by stars (or upcoming stars) of the aging field.
