Genes and Development Spring Retreat

About the Retreat
The Genes and Development Program (G&D), the Department of Genetics, and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology sponsor an annual two-day scientific retreat each spring that students, postdocs, faculty and research staff in the two departments and G&D labs attend. The retreat offers trainees an outstanding opportunity to learn about the science going on in program labs, to foster new collaborations, and to meet and get to know each other, the faculty and other researchers in a relaxed setting. Past retreats have been held on the Texas Gulf Coast, in the Texas Hill Country and in the Texas Piney Woods.
With the goal of facilitating scientific exchange and interactions among members of the two departments and the G&D Program, the retreat features trainee and faculty research talks, poster sessions, keynote address by an invited nationally recognized scientist, breakout sessions on career development topics, and recreation time. Students, postdocs and research staff present posters at the poster sessions. All trainee posters and platform talks are judged by faculty for cash awards.
This year’s retreat was held February 27-March 1, 2013 at the TBarM in New Braunfels, Texas.
