Bay Area Aging Meeting (BAAM)

The Bay Area Aging Meeting (BAAM) was founded by Eric Verdin (then at the Gladstone Institutes), Pankaj Kapahi of the Buck Institute, Tom Rando of Stanford, and Danica Chen of UC Berkeley in 2009. The idea received overwhelming support from aging research laboratories across the Bay Area and attracted sponsorship from the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research.

The first BAAM took place at the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco in April 2010. While that first meeting brought together a few dozen participants, the meetings now draw more than 300 attendees. The goals of these semiannual meetings are to stimulate the advancement of aging research, promote its application to human health, and connect scientists throughout the Bay Area to facilitate collaboration.

The BAAM rotates across host institutions, including Gladstone Institutes/UC San Francisco, Stanford University, UC Berkeley and the Buck Institute. These one-day gatherings consist of oral and poster presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are conducting research on the biology of aging and age-related disease. Meetings often feature a keynote lecture from a faculty member and are open to the public. The meeting format is designed to maximize networking among participants.
