New Braunfels, Texas
About the Retreat
The Genes and Development Program (G&D), Department of Genetics, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will hold their annual scientific retreat jointly with the Molecular Carcinogenesis Program March 27-29, 2014 at the T Bar M Conference Center in New Braunfels, Texas. Students, postdocs, and faculty of both graduate programs, and research staff in the Department of Genetics and Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology are invited to participate.
The joint retreat offers trainees an outstanding opportunity to learn about the science being done in Molecular Carcinogenesis and Genes & Development Program labs, to foster new collaborations, to develop scientific presentation skills, and to meet and get to know each other, the faculty and other researchers in a relaxed setting.
With the goal of facilitating scientific exchange and interactions among members of G&D, Molecular Carcinogenesis, the Genetics Department and the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Department, the 2014 retreat will feature trainee and faculty research talks, poster sessions, keynote addresses by Julien Sage, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Cancer Biology) and Genetics, Stanford University, and Victoria Richon, Ph.D., Vice President, Discovery and Preclinical Research Oncology at Sanofi Oncology, breakout sessions on career development topics, and recreation and social time. Posters will be presented by students, postdocs and research staff. All trainee posters and trainee platform talks will be judged by faculty for awards.
The retreat begins at 11:30 a.m. on March 27, 2014 and ends at 11:30 a.m. on March 29. A preliminary schedule is posted here. A detailed meeting schedule will be posted prior to the retreat.
Free charter bus transportation will be provided for Houston attendees who do not wish to drive. Seats are limited so early registration is encouraged. Free parking is available on-site.
Please register, submit your abstract and view the poster guidelines via the links below. All members of the Genes & Development Graduate Program, Molecular Carcinogenesis Graduate Program, first year graduate students doing a rotation in a G&D or Molecular Carcinogenesis lab, and other researchers in the Department of Genetics and Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology are invited to participate.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate in this important and fun scientific retreat.
