The Columbia Aging Center Brown Bag Series presents current theory and research on aging across many disciplines. For example, the Columbia Aging Center has showcased an ongoing series to highlight Columbia’s expertise in the basic biology of aging. But is there just one biology of aging? Entitled “BIOLOGIES” OF AGING?, the Columbia Aging Center series has featured a variety of biology of aging events across Columbia’s campuses (scroll down for more information).
In general, our brown bag talks are informal 90-minute meetings, to which participants are invited to bring lunch. The meetings consist of informal 40-minute presentations given by Columbia University and guest researchers and in some cases with a discussant, followed by general Q&A session and group discussion.
