Providence Area Aging Research Forum. Trenton Woodham, Sedivy Lab. Shane Evans, Neretti Lab

The Providence Area Aging Research Forum (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allowing students, postdocs, and junior faculty to present data in a friendly atmosphere with a focus on discussing unpublished research in progress.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.
