I’m pleased to report that my new scientific home, the Buck Institute for Age Research, will be hosting the 2009 Bay Area Worm Meeting on Friday, March 6th.

Abstract deadline: February 9th
Registration deadline: February 27th
Registration cost: free

Not all (or even most) of the talks will be aging-related, but given the number of prominent Bay Area biogerontologists using the worm as a model system, there are sure to be quite a few excellent presentations on the biology of aging.
