Annual Colloquium

Since 1988, the IOA has hosted an annual event known as the Institute on Aging Colloquium. It is free and open to the public, and now attracts a full-capacity crowd each year from the campus and community. Local researchers showcase cutting-edge science in diverse aspects of aging through talks and poster exhibits, while many organizations from the community provide a Health and Resource Fair. The program additionally includes a Keynote Address by an internationally recognized leader on current and critical topics of aging as well as presentation of New Investigator Awards to junior scholars.
